Opposed to Burnley this Saturday (at 4 p.m.), Chelsea have the opportunity to consolidate their leadership position a little more. At a press conference, Thomas Tuchel said he hoped to stay a long time with the Blues, where he has been unanimous since his arrival in 2020.
After being dismissed from his post in the winter of 2020 by PSG, Thomas Tuchel has rebounded tremendously by succeeding Frank Lampard at Chelsea. Winner of the Champions League last season, the German coach sees his team dominate the Premier League with a leadership position.
Faced with Burnley this Saturday (at 4 p.m.), the former Dortmund coach was asked at a press conference about his intentions for the future: « The quality and the results are the most important, otherwise we have no chance of stay. If you have that and if you feel happy and if the club and the manager establish a relationship of trust, as is the case with Liverpool, Manchester City and of course Burnley, it can be a success. Tuchel also reaffirmed his desire to stay with the Blues: « I will do my best to stay as long as possible because I love where I am. »
« I constantly remind myself that I can be fired »
Despite the good pass from the Premier League leader, the German knows that in case of bad results his place could be threatened one day: « Personally, I do not live in fear and I constantly remind myself that I can be fired » .
Even if this risk exists as for all managers, Tuchel intends to take advantage of the good times he lives within the London club: « It’s a gift, and I’m really living my dream. Hopefully it will last for years to come, weeks, months, whatever « .
