Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has revealed details of the conversation he had with his wards before last night’s UCL triumph against Manchester City.
Tuchel, 47, was in charge at Paris Saint-Germain last season when the Parisien club lost by a lone goal to Bayern Munich.
However, he was finally able to lay his hands on European club football’s elite trophy with Chelsea courtesy of a 42nd-minute strike from Kai Havertz.
Talking to BT Sport after the game, Tuchel said, “You know I was so grateful to arrive a second time (in the final after doing so with PSG last year) but this felt different. I told people before somehow it was.
“It was an incredibly tough fight, what a fight. Today they were determined to win this. We wanted to be the stone in their (City’s) shoe.
“I told everyone to step up and to be more brave with the ball.
“Kai was strong and delivered again. He has great heart.”
