Thomas Tuchel: Managerial record and trophies

The German tactician has now been signed as Bayern Munich’s coach after sacking Julian Nagelsmann.

Thomas Tuchel, a former Chelsea manager who will now lead Bayern Munich, is unquestionably one of the top managers on the planet. The German coach won the UEFA Champions League with Chelsea before helping the team win the FIFA Club World Cup.

Thomas Tuchel excels not just as a coach but also as a crisis manager. When Borussia Dortmund‘s bus was attacked prior to a game, he was in control and yet managed to calmly guide his players. He has also been a model of composure at Chelsea despite the challenging time the team is going through.

Close to winning UCL with PSG

Tuchel guided his team to a record-breaking achievement in European football during his first season as coach of PSG, a French football powerhouse. By December 2018, the German coach’s team had won each of their first 14 league games, creating a 14-point lead.

PSG defeated Caen 3-0 to begin the 2018–19 campaign before defeating Guingamp 3-1 later on. Before their 14-game winning streak was broken by Bordeaux in December, they also defeated Olympique Lyonnais, Lille, AS Monaco, and Olympique Marseille. The 47 points scored by Tuchel’s team in their 17 games throughout the season also established a record.

The German has the highest winning percentage of any Ligue 1 manager ever. Tuchel has a victory rate of 75.6% while coaching PSG in 127 games, winning 95 of them. He recorded 13 draws along with 19 losses.

During his tenure at the club, Tuchel guided PSG to back-to-back Ligue 1 championships. Also, he was able to lead the team to its first-ever appearance in the UEFA Champions League final.

Thomas Tuchel departed PSG with one major regret: despite his best efforts, he had lost the 2019–20 UEFA Champions League final to Bayern Munich. He wouldn’t have anticipated being given a second opportunity at atonement so quickly.

UCL title with Chelsea

Tuchel defeated Atletico Madrid, FC Porto, and Real Madrid to help Chelsea advance to the 2020–21 Champions League final. He atoned for his mistakes by helping Chelsea win just their second Champions League championship in history with a 1-0 victory over Manchester City in the final in Porto.

The achievement of managing two separate teams to the UEFA Champions League final has only been accomplished by Tuchel.

In the return leg in the Round of 16 of the 2021–22 UEFA Champions League, Thomas Tuchel beat Lille to earn his 32nd victory in 50 Champions League games as manager. With 31 victories in his first 50 games as manager, Zinedine Zidane previously held the record.

For the second year in a row, Tuchel’s team defeated Lille 2-1 after coming from deficit to go to the quarterfinals of the competition.

Having won 30 or more of his first 50 Champions League matches as manager, Tuchel belongs to an exclusive club of managers. Zidane (31) and Pep Guardiola are the two group leaders who are also managers (30).

But, as Tuchel attempted his career at large teams, his trophy cabinet began to pile up. Dortmund was his first senior club, where he only won the DFB-Pokal and didn’t win many more titles. While he won every cup available while at PSG, he only failed to win the Champions League after losing the final to Bayern Munich.

He was able to realise his ambition at Chelsea, where he won the Club World Cup and Champions League in his debut season.
