Chelsea manager Tuchel: I'm still happy to be here

Thomas Tuchel insists he is still happy at Chelsea.

Chelsea's owner, Roman Abramovich, has had his assets frozen following Russia's invasion of Ukraine, which has halted his sale of the club.

The move is intended to stop the Russia billionaire making money from Chelsea.

Before Thursday's win over Norwich City, Tuchel said: "I'm not sure I am concerned, but I am aware of it."

"It changes almost every day. I am still happy to be here and still happy to be manager of a strong team. I know there is a lot of noise around.

"It is quite a big change from yesterday to today but we can't influence it, we didn't cause the situation.

"In the moment, it seems that business, let's say football-wise, is more or less protected, but let's see.

"I feel privileged to have the chance to be involved in games, coaching and football that I love."
