Chelsea coaching staff 2022/23

Thomas Tuchel/Manager

Tuchel arrived at Stamford Bridge in January of 2021, after an underwhelming first half to the season 2020/21. He has been a success since his arrival. The Blues won their second Champions League four months after his arrival and finished fourth in the league that year.

In season 2021/22, Tuchel led his team to UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup wins, in addition to reaching the two domestic cup finals, only losing them on penalties to Liverpool. He also managed to make them finish third in the league despite turmoil off the pitch concerning the ownership issues.

Chelsea fans will hope for more success to come under the management of the German.

Arno Michels/Assistant Manager

Michels has been working with Tuchel since their days together back in Mainz. The German met Tuchel while they were taking their professional coaching badges, and when the latter took his first managerial role at Mainz in 2009, he asked Michels to assist him.
