German receives accolade after continuing his unbeaten start to his Chelsea tenure in March
Thomas Tuchel has claimed the Barclays Manager of the Month award for March 2021.
The Chelsea head coach wins the prize for the first time after just his second full month in charge at Stamford Bridge, becoming the second German to win the award following Jurgen Klopp.
“I am really happy to have received this award and I believe it is a great achievement for everybody at the club who is involved in putting the team together to play each week
The award would not be possible if it wasn’t for the hard work of all my coaching staff and the wider support team who all push the team in the same direction, to achieve success.”
“Lastly, I want to acknowledge the hard work of the players who have given me their maximum efforts and commitment since I arrived and we hope we can keep this strong run going until the very end of the season,” Tuchel told the club’s official website.
