Thomas Tuchel and his Chelsea side breathed a sigh of relief after claiming a top-four spot on the final day of the Premier League season on Sunday and then added the top prize in European club football - the Champions League.

Tuchel trophy haul

The German coach spent a year with Augsburg reserves (2007-08) but it was with Bundesliga side Mainz 05 where Tuchel cut his managerial teeth and started to generate a profile as an astute head coach. 

Despite no trophy glory with Mainz from his spell with the Rhine based outfit from 2009-2104, he managed to secure top flight status for the side and with Jurgen Klopp's departure from Dortmund to Liverpool, Tuchel replaced Klopp for a second time.

It was with BVB where Tuchel claimed his first major managerial haul winning the DFB Pokal in 2017 with a 2-1 win over Frankfurt at Berlin's Olympic stadium.

Tension at the club led to Tuchel being released from the position some three days after the cup win and spent the following year out of the game.

Parisian move

PSG confirmed the appointment of Tuchel as new head coach in May 2018 and with his star studded team featuring the likes of Neymar, Mbappé and Di Maria, the Ligue 1 giants secured back-to-back Ligue 1 wins. The 2019-20 season also saw Tuchel steer PSG to a double with both league and Coupe de France wins. Under the German's guidance, PSG also secured two French Super Cup wins and in 2019-20 the Parisian side bagged the last ever edition of the Coupe de la Ligue. PSG reached the final of the covid-rocked Champions League and fell short in Lisbon with a 1-0 defeat.

Once again, tension with club executive's and the UCL loss ultimately became the German's undoing in the French capital.

London calling

After leaving PSG on Christmas Eve of 2020, a move to the Premier League was next up for the 47-year-old after Chelsea selected Tuchel as the man to replace Frank Lampard.

His replacement of Lampard riggered an astonishing turnaround founded on a rock-solid defence and the midfield shield provided by N'Golo Kante and Jorginho. Chelsea academy product Mason Mount helped big-money signings Timo Werner and Kai Havertz find their form.

Tuchel saw his Chelsea side reach the final of the 2021 FA Cup but had to settle for a runners-up medal after defeat to Leicester City.

And Saturday's final in Porto gave the German the opportunity to write his name in a page of Chelsea history and duly did so.
