Thomas’ Thu story
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel loves fly-on-the wall football documentaries — but is in no particular hurry to star in one himself, like Manchester City, Arsenal and Tottenham did.
When it was put to Tuchel that a behind-the-scenes series about the Blues’ turbulent 2021-2022 season would have been TV gold, the German tactician said with a rueful laugh: “Yes, it would have been.
“We had these discussions many times. They started even in [Borussia] Dortmund and, as you can imagine, in Paris Saint-Germain we had these discussions pretty often.
“Here, as you know, I enjoy it so much that it’s purely about football in this building and in this club. It is still one of the biggest joys and why I love it so much to be here.
“To be honest, I watch the football documentaries also because I am curious and I want to see it.
“I 100 per cent would have watched it as a kid over and over again. But at the same time, I’m not so sure you see everything.
“Maybe it’s new times and maybe at some point we will have to be open to it. I’m quite happy I was not asked the question so far — but let’s see, we are always open to new ideas”
