German manager Thomas Tuchel has officially been appointed as Chelsea’s new manager following Frank Lampard’s sacking.
The former Paris Saint-Germain head coach hopes to be in position in time to be able to take charge of his new side against Wolves on Wednesday.
Tuchel is set to sign an 18-month contract, with the option for a further year.
He is back in management just a month after his exit from PSG.
Just 24 hours after sacking Lampard as Chelsea’s head coach, Blues owner Roman Abramovich is ready to usher in the latest manager to be given the task of leading the London club.
Thomas Tuchel comes with Chelsea currently in ninth place in the Premier League table and he will be tasked to improve them.
Overall, Lampard only earned 1.67 points per game during his 18 months in charge at Stamford Bridge.
This is one of the main reasons why he has been axed.
