During Chelsea’s victory against Man City on Saturday in the C1 final, Tuchel wore “lucky” shoes offered by Nasser Al-Khelaïfi.
Yes, Paris Saint-Germain helped Chelsea win their second Champions League. Or rather its president, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi.
First of all by sacking Thomas Tuchel last winter before he joined the Blues, and above all by offering him a pair of “lucky” shoes before the final of the edition… 2020!
Forgotten in 2020, present in 2021
Before Tuchel and his former team lost in the final to Bayern Munich (0-1), the Parisian president actually offered a pair of shoes to his coach, and the latter had promised to wear them for the final. Something he finally forgot to do!

Once, not twice. Back in the final a few months later, but this time with Chelsea, Tuchel did not forget to put on his precious shoes, and that explains why the players wore them in triumph in the dressing room during the celebrations of post-game.
“It was a gift from Nasser and I promised my staff that I would wear them in the final. I forgot, and we lost. This time I wore them, and it worked!”, he explained after the meeting. Thanks Nasser?
