Thomas Tuchel sends Roman Abramovich message after Chelsea qualify for Champions League final

Thomas Tuchel says Chelsea’s Champions League final is what Roman Abramovich deserves.

The Blues look set for an exciting end to the season after beating Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final in midweek to set up a final against Man City.

That game will come after an FA Cup final against Leicester City and the culmination of a tight race for the top four.

No matter how the two finals go, it has undoubtedly been an impressive opening stint to Tuchel’s Chelsea career after taking charge in January following Frank Lampard’s sacking, at which point the team looked rocky defensively and were struggling to find fluidity in attack.

The German manager has made the Blues defensively resolute and has also started getting the most out of compatriots Timo Werner and Kai Havertz in attack – something that appeared to be vital for any new manager following the club’s big outlay on the two players last summer.

Tuchel says he has not spoken to Abramovich about how his time at the Blues is going but speaks regularly with other members of the Stamford Bridge hierarchy.

He added that he thinks the Blues owner is pleased with how things are going and that the Russian is deserving of any success that comes the club’s way.

“I am in touch with the board, I am in touch with all the people who are in charge,” he said.

“I have no regrets and I am pretty sure he [Abramovich] likes what he sees and he likes the results. This is what he deserves.

“He has built a fantastic club and I am part of this club. We try to make him happy and ourselves happy. So we have the same goals.”
