Glen Johnson Exclusive: Tuchel To Be Chelsea Boss For A Long Time

Ex-Chelsea defender Glen Johnson has backed Blues boss Thomas Tuchel to remain at the club for “a very long time”. Tuchel arrived at Stamford Bridge in January 2021 and won the Champions League that season – before subsequently winning the UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup. He also took Chelsea to two FA Cup finals and an EFL Cup final, but they were beaten on each occasion. The German tactician’s first half-season yielded a top-four Premier League finish, while his first full campaign saw Chelsea clinch third spot. And Johnson has hailed Tuchel’s work at Stamford Bridge – though he does not feel that the Blues are genuine title contenders just yet.


Tuchel Praise

Speaking exclusively to Genting, he said: “Tuchel has done a great job. 

“At the beginning, people thought it was harsh that Frank Lampard had been sacked and I personally thought it was a bit too soon to sack him.“Everyone was then raving about Tuchel at the beginning of his Chelsea career because they won four on the bounce, but they were four easy games. After that, he impressed me massively.

“The players love him and he shows great attitude and energy on the sidelines. He’s done a fantastic job and if he gets the players that he wants then I could see him being at Chelsea for a very long time.

“[However], I can’t see Chelsea being good enough at the moment to win the league. 

“As long as they bridge the gap and remain competitive for the last 25% of the season then I think they would take that. 

“They will get top four and as long as there is some sort of improvement and the gap is closed from City and Liverpool then that would be a good season.”

Chelsea Should Sign Rice

Johnson feels that West Ham midfielder Declan Rice could be a positive addition if Chelsea are looking to mount a title tilt – and urged the Blues to get a deal done quickly.

“Yes, I think [Chelsea should be targeting Rice this summer],” he added. 

“They’re quite active this window and everyone knows they are interested in Rice. 

“If they really wanted to do it they would have done it already, and I find it strange that it is taking so long.”
