Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has vowed to go drunk if his Stamford Bridge side defeat Manchester City to win the Champions League on Saturday night, May 29.
The German tactician aims for his first Champions League glory and he is already in party mood ahead of the encounter with the hope of tasting success.
Chelsea vs Manchester City will hold at the Estadio do Dragao on Saturday night to determine who the king of Europe is.
Both teams are already in Portugal for the showdown. Both Premier League clubs, despite being amongst the world’s largest now find themselves on club football’s biggest stage very rarely.
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. Tuchel told Telegraph, via Daily Star:
“I will get drunk because that is easy, two gin and tonics, and that’s it
“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."
Meanwhile, Thomas Tuchel has named his 25-man squad for Chelsea's Champions League final against their English rivals Man City.
The pair of N'Golo Kante and Édouard Mendy who were major doubts for the trip have been included in the travelling party following their return to training on Wednesday, May 26.
Mendy is understood to have picked a rib injury on the final day of the Premier League campaign after he collided against the post.
Mendy's injury initially left Tuchel a worried man given he is an integral squad member in his team.
However, the keeper now looks set to start between the sticks having shown glimpses of recovery from his injury. His deputy, Kepa, also formed part of the travelling team, with Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, and Cesar Azpilicueta among the defenders.
Meanwhile, it was earlier reported that Real Madrid can confirm that Bayern Munich legend David Alaba will be their player for the next five seasons.
Los Blancos beat off competition from clubs like Chelsea, Barcelona and others to reach an agreement for the 28-year-old.
The Austrian defender of Nigerian descent is expected to earn around £10.5 million per year after joining them on a free transfer.
