“It is never easy to change Head Coach in the middle of the season but we are very happy to secure one of Europe’s best coaches in Thomas Tuchel,” Director Marina Granovskaia was quoted as saying, “There is still much to play for and much to achieve, this season and beyond. We welcome Thomas to the Club.”
