When asked if he will be taking a holiday before meeting with the new owners to discuss next season's plans, he said: "No, it's impossible. Cannot go on holiday, no. There are too many things to clarify and give an opinion. Of course, nowadays, you can have meetings on Zoom so it's not necessary to do everything in person. 

"The first days I will be here anyway and around because my children are in school, so it will start with a bit of a delay to the holidays.


"But even in holidays, it's also normal in a situation like ours, that you stay in contact and you have the possibility with Zoom and Facetime to have calls, share opinions and move forward because we need to."

Chelsea are set to lose both Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen as Tuchel will need to replace the defenders in his squad as well as looking to add further players to help close the gap to Man City and Liverpool.
