Tuchel sets fresh Chelsea target

A day after winning the UEFA Champions League title, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has set a new target for the club. 

The German arrived at the London club in January, replacing Frank Lampard, and has gone on to enjoy immense success in his first six months in charge. 

In addition to the win in Porto, the Blues managed to qualify for the FA Cup finals, where they lost to Leicester City and finished in the top-four in the Premier League. 

Speaking after the win over Pep Guardiola's team, Tuchel said his next focus is another trophy and getting better. 

"It’s about the next one," Tuchel declared.

"I experienced it in on a lower level when I won my first title in professional football and it was even a nice feeling that it did not do too much to me. When we won the cup with Dortmund, I did not arrive in the next training with less hunger, with less desire or with less ambition,"

"Of course now is the time to celebrate for some days and to enjoy it and let it sink in. This is the time now for one or two weeks to talk about it and reflect on it. But then surprisingly it does not do a lot to you, and I think that’s good because nobody wants to rest,"

I don't want to rest. I want the next one. I want the next success and I want the next title and I want the next process on the same level of quality of consistency.

"I want to be a part of it and this is what comes next. Make no mistake about it,"

He also had a message to Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, whom he met on the pitch after the win over Man City. 

"I can assure him that I will stay hungry. I want the next title and I feel absolutely happy, I feel part of a really ambitious club and a strong part of a strong group that suits my beliefs and suits my passion about football at the moment perfectly,"
