Chelsea boss Tuchel and wife ‘paid for housekeeper’s son to have heart surgery’

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel showed his selfless side during his time with PSG in France after finding out that his housekeeper's son was in need of surgery.

The German coach spent two-and-a-half seasons with the Parisians after leaving Borussia Dortmund, winning two league titles, as well as the French Cup and French League Cup.

Since moving to the Premier League with Chelsea, he dragged them up in the table and into a top four finish as well as securing victory over Manchester City in the final of the Champions League.

The 48-year-old quickly endeared himself to Blues fans with their defensive solidarity and his coaching nouse, and one story that has emerged about his time on the continent shows his true character.

The Sun report that Tuchel dipped into his own pocket to help out his housekeeper after finding out that she was working extra hours to fund a heat operation for her son.

They add that Tuchel and his wife Sissi hired the Filipino housekeeper shortly after moving from Germany to France, and that she worked incredibly hard and was constantly available.

The family are said to have formed a close bond with the women, and immediately funded the operation in full and that the procedure was success.

Furthermore, Tuchel is said to have bought a dream home for the housekeeper and her family in her native Philippines after learning that it was her dream to retire and be with her family.

Wife Sissi is said to have been a huge support to Thomas during his coaching career, but the pair are rarely seen in pubic together as they keep their personal lives private.

In another example of his considerate personality, Tuchel asked the Chelsea board if they were sure about sacking club legend Frank Lampard before he took the job.

He told Sky Sports back in August: "I actually said to the board, 'are you sure of doing this?

"Because they will not like you. Maybe he deserves more time. Because when I think of Chelsea I think about Frank Lampard, John Terry, Petr Cech, Didier Drogba.

"I think about him in the very first moment because he embodies everything that Chelsea is: hard work, aggressive player, big leader but at the same time a normal guy on the pitch and such a team player. A true, true legend.

"But I clearly understood the choice was more or less made and it was take it or leave it. Then I hoped for a fair chance with the players because when you step in, there is not everybody happy from 20, 22 players.

"You cannot expect everybody to be happy with the manager gone, especially because he had a good [Champions League] group stage, good results, good performances and sometimes he was also simply unlucky, with what the data showed to us.

"But I said very early, 'listen guys, I did not push him out. I am just here now to continue in my way and let's try to be open and give us a chance together.'

"I'm in a top club with fantastic support, super organised and strong group on the field. It's a pleasure to work every day and it's like this since day one."
