Chelsea boss Tuchel: Klopp? I'm facing a Mainz legend!

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is excited ahead of Sunday's Carabao Cup final against Liverpool.

Tuchel is unbeaten in his three games against Liverpool as Chelsea boss, drawing twice and winning once, at Anfield last season.

Speaking about facing Jurgen Klopp for a fourth time in England, the Bavarian spoke of his pride and excitement ahead of Sunday's encounter.

"It feels great. I am so grateful to be a part of it. We both come from more or less the same club," Tuchel said. "I had my first experience coaching professional football at Mainz, he was a legendary player and coach at Mainz and I came after him.

"We met in the Champions League and Premier League, we have played against each other in the Europa League and now in the Wembley final.

"This is amazing and I am so grateful to be a part of it, to have these experiences. It means an awful lot to me, to have this and I respect your English tradition of cup football and of Wembley. I can tell you, this means so much to me."
