“It was a pretty normal day so far at the training center,” Tuchel said when he joined the ceremony after winning the FIFA The Best award.
“I’ve just come from training because we have a game tomorrow, but now you opened my envelope and said my name, so it’s pretty surreal and I’m overwhelmed.
“I feel a little bit uncomfortable, actually. I enjoy the journey and I enjoy the club. At the moment, this is a good fit.
“We’ve lost a bit of ground to Manchester City in the league but in any other competitions, we still follow our goals.”
“We try to be the best version of ourselves and compete on the highest level.”
Chelsea have struggled, managing just one win in their last 6 Premier League encounters, and Man City are now 13 points ahead of the Blues.
Tuchel’s suggestion that the Blues will follow their goals in other competitions could be seen as a bit of a white flag, but it’s an encouraging sign for Chelsea as they could still end the season with multiple trophies.
