Chelsea boss Tuchel funded housekeeper son's heart op - and bought her villa!

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel helped his housekeeper when with PSG by paying for her son's heart operation.

Soon after arriving at the Parc des Princes from Borussia Dortmund, Tuchel and his wife Sissi hired a Filipino housekeeper, reports The Sun .

The woman is said to have worked extremely hard and always made herself available to the family.

The Tuchels formed a bond with the woman and the Chelsea boss eventually learned she was primarily working to fund a major heart operation for her son.

Tuchel is said to have immediately funded the op in full and fortunately the procedure went well and the boy was able to look forward to a healthy life.

As his time at PSG came to an end, a conversation between Tuchel and the woman led to another touching act.

During a chat about lifetime dreams, the woman said hers was to buy a house in the Philippines where she could retire and live with her family.

Tuchel was sacked by the Ligue 1 side soon after but did not forget about the housekeeper.

He forked out for her dream home in her homeland where she now lives with her family.
