Chelsea, a club in the English Premier League, announced today, Tuesday, that it has signed coach Thomas Tuchel to succeed Frank Lampard, who was sacked by the club.
The 47-year-old German coach, who previously coached Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain, signed an 18-month contract with a clause allowing for an extension.
Saint-Germain split from Tuchel last December after winning two French League titles and leading the team to the 2020 UEFA Champions League final when they lost to Bayern Munich.
Welcome to Chelsea, Thomas Tuchel! ✍️🔵 #WelcomeTuchel
