'So humble': Some Chelsea fans adored what Abramovich said after Champions League win

Chelsea supporters on social media were delighted to see Roman Abramovich and Thomas Tuchel’s interaction following the Champions League final.

Amidst all of the celebrations on the pitch at full time, Abramovich was spotted approaching Tuchel to offer a few words of congratulations.

The Russian simply said ‘thank you’ to the manager who had earned him another trophy as owner of Chelsea.

Blues fans absolutely loved this short but sweet moment between the pair.

Here’s how they reacted on Twitter:


Interestingly, that meeting on the Porto turf was the first between Abramovich and Tuchel since the latter had been appointed Chelsea coach in January.

Abramovich is very much the man behind the scenes; an enigma to many.

This made his conversation with the Blues boss even more meaningful.

Tuchel arrived at Stamford Bridge with an 18-month contract, tasked with winning trophies and finishing inside the Premier League top four.

He has achieved both in just over four months, whilst transforming the team into a much sturdier unit than Frank Lampard could manage.

Thanks to his achievements, its likely that Abramovich will not only look favourably upon extending Tuchel’s deal, but also hand him a financial treasure chest for the summer transfer window.

However, everyone knows how quickly things can change at Chelsea, so nothing is guaranteed beyond the start of next season.
