“Now Chelsea seems to be the perfect fit for me from day one,” Thomas Tuchel said at a press conference.
“I am super happy to be at this club, be part of the club, and maybe this is the last percent. If you feel happy and appreciated, everything falls into place very genuinely and you are able to produce results together.
“I don’t know if I needed extra motivation but I wasn’t happy to be sacked at Christmas [by PSG] because my mission was not fulfilled.”
“I had big plans for the Champions League campaign and to win the league again at PSG. I was hungry and on the way. It was a huge interruption.
“But then some weeks later came a huge opportunity and the desire to step into this adventure was bigger than the fear and concern about the 18-month contract.
“You need to take the adventure, be brave, courageous and I have the feeling I got a big reward.”
Meanwhile, in his last full season with PSG, Thomas Tuchel got to his first Champions League final but lost to Bayern Munich.
Less than a year later, PSG were not in the final but Tuchel led Chelsea to the trophy-less than six months after taking over.
