🇩🇪 Thomas Tuchel on his expiring contract and top four mandate

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel, is not overly concerned over meeting the club’s expectations in order to earn a new contract extension.

As reported here on Futaa when the German joined, Tuchel earned a unusual 18-month contract, for which a longer stay lies on finishing in the Premier League’s top four.

With the clock ticking while the Blues remain in fifth place with a point and a game behind West Ham in fourth place, with seven games to go, Tuchel says what will be, will be.

"I had these concerns and after 15 minutes I said to myself it changes nothing how many years the contract says,” the German recalled his view when he signed the deal before moving to London.

"I demand to deliver, to have an impact and be the best I can.

"If I deserve to stay, I want to stay as long as possible. I feel like part of the family, it is super professional, we have unbelievable support and I want to fight on the touchline with this team.

"I don't care what the contract says. If I deserve to stay longer, I will stay longer. I feel free and good, I'm at the right place. If I want to stay long, I need to deliver week in, week out,” concluded the former Borussia Dortmund and PSG manager.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have a UEFA Champions League semi-final and FA Cup final to look ahead to in the coming weeks.

Up next is the visit of Brighton for a League game on Tuesday.
