Chelsea boss Tuchel taken aback by new banner: It made me very happy

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has thanks the support for his banner displayed this week.

After guiding the team to another two trophies this season, following on from the heroic Champions League triumph a year ago, Chelsea supporters unveiled a new banner in homage to the boss prior to kick-off against Leicester.

Tuchel's face said it all when he spotted the display after emerging from the tunnel and he expressed his gratitude to the fans for the act of support.

"I was very happy," he admitted. "I never had any banner and I was actually looking at the banner for Mason Mount until somebody told me there's another banner on the other side.

"It's very nice so thank you very much. I will do my best to earn it."
