Watch: Tuchel entertains his Chelsea players with hilarious Pep impression

Videos

Thomas Tuchel will contest one of the biggest games in his managerial career tonight as Chelsea take on Manchester City in the Champions League final, but he appears in a pretty relaxed mood.

Having been at the helm as PSG lost to Bayern Munich in last season’s final, Tuchel has become the first coach to reach back-to-back finals with different clubs, having been sacked by the French champions at Christmas before succeeding Frank Lampard at Stamford Bridge a few short weeks later.

The Blues boss and Pep Guardiola have a good relationship, dating back to when Tuchel was making a name for himself at Mainz and Guardiola had arrived at Bayern. You’d imagine, then, that this apparent impression of Guardiola’s intensive wild-eyed touchline demeanour was done with respect.

Cameras caught Tuchel speaking with his players outside on a balcony in Porto, doing a pretty spot-on impersonation of the City coach.

His reaction when he sees the camera and realises he’s been filmed is priceless, too.
