Chelsea have announced Thomas Tuchel as their new manager after parting ways with Frank Lampard on Monday morning
The former Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-German boss Tuchel has arrived in west London with the Blues ninth in the Premier League following a run of five losses in eight games.
He was dismissed by PSG on Christmas Eve last year despite leading the French giants to four major honours over the previous two seasons.
A statement on the Chelsea website read: “Thomas Tuchel has been appointed as the new Chelsea Head Coach.
“He moves to Stamford Bridge following a two-and-a-half year spell at French champions Paris Saint-Germain, which came to an end last month.
“He will be the first German to manage Chelsea and arrives having guided PSG to four major honours and the Champions League final during his time in the French capital.
“Prior to that, he spent seven seasons coaching in the Bundesliga, first with Mainz, where he led them to the Europa League, and then a successful period with Borussia Dortmund where he won the German Cup.
“At Chelsea, he will be reunited with Christian Pulisic and Thiago Silva who he coached during his spells in Dortmund and Paris respectively.”
