I never thought about reaching these heights’: Tuchel reacts to winning UEFA Men’s Coach of the Year Award
“It’s like a dream,” Thomas Tuchel said on receiving the UEFA Men’s Coach of the Year Award.
“I never thought about reaching these heights when I started coaching, so it’s simply amazing. It feels a bit surreal, but we are absolutely delighted.
“Like always it is a team effort in football, so I take it on behalf of my whole staff, and everybody who works hard at Cobham every day to push the team to the limits.”
Tuchel arrived at Stamford Bridge in late January and quickly transformed the side – only Man City won more points in the Premier League last season than Chelsea since Tuchel’s arrival.
And, of course, the German led us to victory in the Champions League and then followed that up with a Super Cup win a few weeks ago. Well deserved for him to win the award!
