Thomas Tuchel said he was close to extending his contract after Chelsea beat Manchester City 1-0 in the Champions League Final.

“I am not even 100% sure maybe I have already a new contract now,” Tuchel said. “My manager said something about it. Let’s check this first. I spoke to the owner right now on the pitch. It was the best moment for the first meeting. It can only get worse! We will speak tomorrow. We will speak later. I will stay hungry for the next title. My desire is for more victories ands to grow as a coach."

Tuchel originally signed an 18-month contract in January.

Tuchel added that he was surprised by Pep Guardiola excluding Fernandinho from City's starting lineup.

“We expected Fernandinho in the lineup to start,” he said. “He chose a very offensive lineup. A very, very technical lineup. It was hard to steal the balls. Everything else we more or less expected. We were sure we needed to play with a strong bond and a genuine belief. It was a tough match.”
