Whether superstitious or not, the fact remains Tuchel credited the one shoe he was gifted in PSG for Chelsea UCL victory
The German took up Chelsea halfway after being sacked by PSG board over political issues.
Tuchel has been a very good coach all along but never wants to be in involved in clubs’ political issues as this has remained the only thing causing his sack, even at Dormtund.
But while he was shown the door at Paris Saint German, the former Mainz manager kept hold of a shoe the Parisians president gifted him.
According to Tuchel, he had promised to wear the shoe to their final against Bayern Munich but failed to and believes it’s part of the reasons they lost to the German Giants.
And in order to fulfil this promise of wearing this shoes to a final, Tuchel kept it safe and secured until May 29th, 2021 when he decided to fulfill his promise to his former club.
“I forgot that I had these shoes in Paris and I made a promise that I would wear these shoes when we reached the Champions League final. They were a present from the president of PSG.
“I promised to my staff that I would wear them when we went to the final, but I did not wear them and we lost.
“So I wore them today and it worked.”
“It was then soon filled with beer from a bottle and Marcos Alonso, drank from it.”
Even during their celebration in the dressing room, Tuchel was seen pulling the shoe and kissing it while his boys raised it afterwards.
Below is a video of the shoe incident taking place in the dressing room.
Tuchel is set to meet Chelsea owner today to discuss plans of the club and also seal an extension deal and here is what he has said.
