Tuchel makes Champions League history as Chelsea qualify for final

Thomas Tuchel has become the first coach to reach the European Cup or Champions League final in consecutive years with different clubs.

Chelsea beat Real Madrid 2-0 on Wednesday night in their semi-final second leg, to seal a 3-1 aggregate win.

The Blues will face Premier League rivals Manchester City in the final.

Last year, Tuchel led PSG to the final, where the Ligue 1 side lost 1-0 to Bayern Munich.

When BT Sport told Tuchel he must be doing something right to have achieved such a feat, he replied: “Or not because it’s not the same club! It depends who you ask.”

The German then added: “I’m very happy that we’ve achieved this. I’m very grateful to have the opportunity to live my life in football and this passion as a profession.

“So grateful to do it on this level and to get to another final, I’m very grateful for that.”
