Fans Loved Thomas Tuchel Coaching Callum Hudson-Odoi At Full Time

Thomas Tuchel took a page out of Pep Guardiola's book, after defeating him for the second time this season, and coached Callum Hudson-Odoi at full time.


Chelsea faced Manchester City on Saturday evening, just a few days after both sides had booked their place in the Champions League final later this month.

Both sides were welcomed by a group of City supporters who had gathered outside the Etihad Stadium in anticipation of celebrating a Premier League title win.

It looked like City would gain the three points needed to secure the title, when they led 1-0 at half time, but Tuchel's side turned things around to win 2-1.

At full time the former PSG manager took to the pitch to congratulate his players and when he got to Hudson-Odoi, whose appearance as a second half substitute helped change the game, the manager playfully pushed him, passionately gave him a coaching lesson, before holding him in a loving manner.

It's not the first time that scenes like that have been talked about at the Etihad, though it's usually the home team manager dolling them out.

Pep Guardiola has often made a point of having deep meaningful chats with his players at full time of games, and sometimes he's done it with opposition players, most famously Nathan Redmond.

As well as stealing his move, and his title winning moment, it was the second time in recent weeks that Tuchel had got one over the two time Champions League winning manager.

Chelsea beat City 1-0 in the FA Cup semi final at Wembley last month and won 2-1 on Saturday, though they were helped by Sergio Aguero's terrible penalty.

The German will be hoping to make it three in-a-row on May 29th when they meet in the Champions League final.
