Chelsea manager was crowned best German coach of the year, ahead of former Bayern Munich’s tactician, Hansi Flick
The Blues have been honored with yet another achievement as their new coach gets the Best German Manager of the Year Award.
Tuchel led Chelsea to a Champions League final in just months of his take over and also successfully managed to bring it home as he spiced that up with a top-four finish.
With 30 games so far as Chelsea manager, Tuchel has lost only 5 and drawn 6 while winning the remaining 19 of which come crucial wins in the UEFA Champions League including a historical victory against Atletico Madrid.
Speaking on the individual award, Tuchel claimed he isn’t comfortable receiving it as an individual award but rather a team award as he is part of a team.

“I accept the award very gratefully as a great honor for the entire team because I see myself as a team player. Therefore, the personal award is a bit uncomfortable for me,” the 47-year-old said.
Before winning the UCL with Chelsea, Tuchel had led his former side, Paris Saint-German to the UCL but unfortunately lost to Hansi Flick who was crowned 2nd Best German Manager.
Flick has already left his job as Bayern Munich coach and will take on the national team job.
Thomas Tuchel has already begun the pre-season preparation with his boys as Chelsea continues being heavily linked to a huge deal for a sensational scorer.
