Tuchel admits what gets him drunk as he hopes Chelsea can earn big party

Thomas Tuchel has his party hat on ahead of the Champions League final as he opens up over his drunken antics.

Chelsea take on Manchester City tonight in Porto with the biggest prize on offer in club football.

It is the first time that the Etihad outfit have reached this stage of the competition, whereas the Blues have played two – losing one and winning the other in 2012.

For Tuchel, his last appearance was a lot more recent – just 10 months ago when Paris Saint-Germain lost to Bayern Munich in Lisbon.

Now back in Portugal, the German has the chance to right the wrongs of that night – though this time with Chelsea.

And the ex-Borussia Dortmund manager has admitted he wants to wake up on Sunday with a hangover – even if it a few gin and tonics.

“I will get drunk because that is easy, two gin and tonics, and that’s it,” he told the Telegraph when asked what will happen if Chelsea win the Champions League.

“But then I can take a third one and a fourth one, and feel actually pretty normal again and then the fifth one makes me, again, drunk.

"No, we will have fun, we will have a lot of fun, of course.

“I love it when other people are happy.

"Maybe I’m not the guy to dance on the table, but I will be so super-happy if we win and I see my team, my staff, the families and when I feel what it means to my family and to people around my family, to my grandma and to others.

"This is huge for me and we will have fun, I’ll not drink a still water all night.”

Chelsea take on one of the most successful managers in the competition in the shape of Pep Guardiola – though he has not tasted success in this competition for 10 years when he last won the Champions League in 2011 with Barcelona.
