Tuchel is in line for a new contract at Chelsea and will be trusted by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich to further improve his squad in the upcoming transfer window.
Asked what was next for his current group of players after tasting success in Porto on Saturday, the former PSG boss said:
“Obviously we have a strong group, a strong bond, that can defend as a unit which is a huge part of football and have answers for questions in the game. They have a huge energy in the game and can deliver under pressure.
“The level is now set from when the celebrations are over and when we have digested this experience, it is the moment to evolve and to use it, become better to learn. It is absolutely crucial. We have young players, now it is a big challenge to stay hungry and go for the next one.”
