Tuchel succeeds his compatriot Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool), winner of the two previous editions and whom he relieved on the Borussia Dortmund bench in April 2015.

“It’s a pretty normal day so far. You said my name and it was a bit surreal, I’m impressed. I find it strange to have won the award. I am enjoying the moment. We’ve lost some steam in the league, but in other competitions we’re in good shape. It’s exciting to be here. I also congratulate the Chelsea coach”said the winner.
