BREAKING: Tuchel appointed Chelsea manager following Lampard sacking

Chelsea have confirmed the appointment of Thomas Tuchel as the club’s new manager.

The Blues moved swiftly to bring in the German following the decision to sack Frank Lampard on Monday.

The 47-year-old will be charged with the task of reviving the fortunes of a side sat in ninth in the Premier League table, with Champions League qualification the likely target for the remainder of the season.

Tuchel, who was sacked as coach of Paris Saint-Germain in December, has signed an 18-month contract, with the option of a further year in west London.

His predecessor, Lampard, had been handed a three-year contract when the Blues legend was appointed Chelsea boss in the summer of 2019 following a season in charge of Championship side Derby County.

Tuchel will be in charge against Wolves at home in the Premier League on Wednesday.

There was a chance the German could have had to be absent from the dugout for the game with Nuno Espirito Santo's side due to coronavirus restrictions, however Chelsea's statement said Tuchel would be with the team.
