Thomas Tuchel takes swipe at PSG and Dortmund and reveals unique bond with Chelsea fans
THOMAS TUCHEL has taken a swipe at Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund by revealing his unique bond with Chelsea supporters.
The Stamford Bridge faithful displayed their support for Tuchel this week by unveiling a banner dedicated to the Champions League winner.
Reports claim the German faces an uncertain future with Chelsea’s takeover by Todd Boehly yet to be rubberstamped.
But Blues fans are desperate for Tuchel to stay, with many feeling the tactician needs several transfer windows to build a squad in his own image.
Tuchel himself is eager to remain at the London club after taking to English football like a duck to water.
The 48-year-old previously won trophies at both Dortmund and PSG, two of Europe’s top sides.

“If the stadium is empty, half empty or full, we need full stadiums, this makes the game exciting, emotional.
“This creates something you can’t find without them. We are doing this for entertainment, for making our fans happy.
“We are responsible for the spark, energy, and we want to provide a level of energy that they can feel it.
