Tuchel explains his 'unusual' shoe celebration after Champions League win

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has given an insight into his unusual celebration following their Champions League triumph over Man City last week. 

The Blues beat the Premier League champions 1-0 courtesy of a Kai Havertz goal, sparking wild celebrations from the fans. 

Tuchel joined in the celebrations in the dressing room, removing his trainers with the likes of Olivier Giroud, Antonio Rudiger, and Kurt Zouma all jostling to have the footwear. 

It was a bit strange, but Tuchel has now revealed why his shoes were so heavily involved in the post-match celebrations.

"I had these exact trainers in Paris and I made a promise that we will wear these shoes when we reach the Champions League final," Tuchel said.

"They were a present from the president at PSG and I promised my staff I would wear them in the final,"

"I did not wear them that day, and we lost [to Bayern Munich]. I made sure I wore them this year and they worked!"
