Thomas Tuchel wins 2021 Germany Manager of the year award

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has been voted Germany’s Manager of the Year, Newspremises reports.

He has enjoyed the second half of the 2020/21 campaign in charge of Chelsea, with the club winning the Champions League and finishing the Premier League season in the top four.

‘I accept the award very gratefully as a great honour for the entire team because I see myself as a team player,’ said Tuchel on receiving the award.

‘I don’t believe in individual awards too much, I truly believe it is a team effort, not only the players on the pitch everybody loves, but the team behind the team. I don’t do this alone. I do it with my staff, not only my German and Hungarian staff but all the people at Cobham. It’s incredible to be part of because there we have an incredible amount of quality and support.

‘Football teams can win without the coaches, but coaches cannot win without the team. It’s a reward for the team and what we did, and now let’s get on.’
