Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has disclosed the details of his conversation with Club owner, Roman Abramovich, after the team’s 2-1 win over Palmeiras in the Club World Cup finals.
Tuchel revealed he dedicated the trophy to the Russian billionaire.
The Blues eventually found a way to win thanks to Kai Havertz’s penalty deep into extra-time.
Chelsea has now completed the set under Abramovich, becoming only the fifth team in Europe to win every club prize available.
Abramovich made his way onto the pitch after the final whistle and joined in the celebrations, before speaking with Tuchel who has delivered three trophies since his appointment just a year ago.
Asked what he told Abramovich, Tuchel said: “It is good for him, We met shortly on the pitch after the final and I said ‘congrats’ and he said ‘congrats’ to me.
“I said, ‘It is for you and it is your club. Your input and passion made it possible.’ The trophy is for him.”
