Thomas Tuchel is facing his first big derby as Chelsea boss tomorrow when the Blues take on Tottenham, and as well as rival clubs it will also see a matchup between Jose Mourinho and Tuchel for the first time in the Premier League.
The Chelsea manager was asked about a potential “clash of cultures” with Mourinho, but chose to emphasise their similarities, and his admiration for the serial winner. As a young coach, Tuchel had looked up to Mourinho as he was establishing himself as a legend of the sport.
Let’s see if they’re still on such good terms after tomorrow night’s game.
You can see the coach speaking in the clip embedded here:
🗣”Jose is a winner and I hope and I want to implement the same in my teams”
