Thomas Tuchel has said that he wants to see out his contract at Stamford Bridge.
The German joined the West London club after the sacking of Frank Lampard in January last year, initially joining on an 18-month seal, with the option of a further year.
He enjoyed almost immediate success, guiding the team to the Champions League final where they beat Manchester City to win the tournament for the second time.
On the strength of that, he was awarded a new improved contract which runs until 2024, and, in an ideal world, he hopes to be able to be allowed to honour that.
However, he also is wary of history, knowing that the hierarchy at Stamford Bridge are not known for their tolerance when it comes to under achievement, and knows if the club fails to deliver more silverware under him, he could, like so many managers before him in the recent past, be shown the door.
And, with the club’s title challenge to fade with their latest draw against Brighton on Tuesday night, he may now be looking over his shoulder.
