At one point, Thomas Tuchel was seen as a potential managerial selection for Bayern Munich, but the former Borussia Dortmund boss has spent the last two seasons leading his teams (Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea) to the League finals. champions.
While he failed against Bayern Munich with PSG, Tuchel managed to outsmart Pep Guardiola and Manchester City in this season’s final. When asked if Tuchel would be able to be so successful in his second year with Chelsea, former Bayern Munich defender Markus Babbel believes Chelsea could be even better.
“It’s possible because they have a very exciting team and a very good mix of young players and experienced players. They won the Champions League because they were the best team and they had the best plan, ”Babbel told NetBet. “(Pep) Guardiola didn’t have a good plan in this final and Thomas Tuchel did it even though they had only worked together for six months at Chelsea. Let him have a full pre-season and pass on his philosophy to the players because it is a very strong team.
Despite his obvious affinity for Tuchel’s coaching prowess, Babbel knows the Premier League will be extremely competitive.
“It’s not easy to beat Chelsea, even for Man City, Liverpool and Man United they are very difficult to beat. The problems will be if Chelsea beat these teams but lose to teams lower in the standings, ”Babbel said. “If you win against Man United or Liverpool but then lose to Brighton or Newcastle, then you don’t win the league.”
