Tuchel names his ultimate European legends XI

Thomas Tuchel had a wonderful start to life at Stamford Bridge, leading Chelsea to Champions League glory and the FA Cup final.

The German picked the winning team as they overcame Pep Guardiola's Man City in Porto thanks to a Kai Havertz goal. 

During an interview this week, the German was asked to name his ultimate 90s European legends XI, and he picked an exciting team consisting of serial winners. 

He went for Peter Schmeichel between the posts, with Roberto Carlos, Javier Zanetti, Marcel Desailly, and current Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman all in his backline. 

Tuchel, who also had a brief player as a defender, had kind words for Koeman, saying; 

"Ronald Koeman was my hero when I was watching international football and Barcelona."

In midfield, Tuchel picked Zinedine Zidane and the 'totally underrated' Didier Deschamps, with Clarence Seedorf completing the lineup.

Upfront, the German went for Rivaldo, Luisi Figo, and another Real Madrid legend in Raul.
