I did my usual train ride and walk to Chelsea’s training ground for the press conference today and Thomas Tuchel drove past.
Even amid a busy season and ownership issues at the club, he took time to slow down and make some jokes before arriving at the training ground.
“I don’t have any excuse not to pick you up, there’s only three of you!” he said.
In return, a friend joked: “Maybe the new owner can get you a better car…”
Interestingly, he drives an all-electric black smart car which is in keeping with his personality.
Largely eating a vegetarian diet and having grown up in rural Bavaria, an interest in the environment seems to be part of Tuchel’s personal makeup.
It just adds another layer to a person that all who cover the club have come to know.
Outside the press room is a staff car park for first team players and coaching staff with his car sat in it at a charging point.
