'Oh, why 18 months?' - Tuchel admits to concerns over short-term Chelsea contract

 The Blues boss has a shorter deal than many managers who are appointed at his level but he has no concerns about the arrangement

Thomas Tuchel has explained why he accepted an 18-month contract at Chelsea after replacing Frank Lampard earlier in the week.

The club icon was sacked after five defeats in eight games, with the Blues slipping from top of the league to tenth place in the space of six weeks.

With talks beginning before Lampard's last game against Luton, an 18-month contract was offered to Tuchel with an option for an extra year.
