Thomas Tuchel could lift the Champions League trophy for the first time in his managerial career on Saturday but he assured Chelsea fans he will not be resting on his laurels should the Blues emerge victorious in Porto this weekend.

Tuchel will lead out a side in the showpiece final for a second year in a row when Chelsea take on Manchester City at the Estadio do Dragao this weekend, a year after his Paris St Germain side were beaten by Bayern Munich in Lisbon in last year’s final.

The German head coach has won nine trophies in his career so far with Borussia Dortmund and PSG and is targeting his first with the Blues this weekend having lost out in the FA Cup final to Leicester City just over a week ago.

Chelsea will play their third Champions League final of the Roman Abramovich era when they face Pep Guardiola’s Premier League champions in Porto, bidding for a second success having won the trophy in 2012 when they beat Bayern in their own back yard.

Speaking with Chelsea’s main sponsor Three as part of their ConnectWith series , Tuchel was asked how we would celebrate if it was him and not Guardiola lifting the famous trophy in Portugal.

The 47-year-old said: “When I first won a trophy with a big club in Dortmund, it didn’t change too much actually. I was so happy for the players.

“The next day we had a big parade with the players through they city and it was clear to me, in this moment, what it means to the people.

“I hope and I think it will not have this immense influence if we win this biggest trophy, of course we will get excited, we will get super excited if we do it, but I am 100 per cent sure that after these titles, also when I was with Paris, in the first friendly match of next season I will be focused 100 per cent on winning.

“I will not change my approach.”
