What Thomas Tuchel has said ahead of the Mind Series
Last month, the German admitted : ” I am pleased that my
first pre-season with Chelsea contains such high-level
fixtures against such top-quality opponents. Hopefully
there can be plenty of fans in the stadiums.
“Derby matches against Arsenal and Tottenham cannot
fail to have a competitive edge, which is what the team
needs as we prepare for the season, and knowing the
games will benefit charities as important as Mind and
our own Foundation adds much value to the series. It is
super important that looking after mental health is
highlighted at this time in history.”

After returning to Stamford Bridge for his Covid-19
vaccine, Tuchel added: “It’s always exciting to see the
stadium and to see the new pitch and to feel a little bit
of the atmosphere. We’re happy to come back soon and
play here in front of our spectators hopefully.”
Chelsea are set to return on August 14 against Crystal
Palace for their 2021/22 Premier League season opener
at Stamford Bridge , and the Blues boss is excited to
welcome the fans back.
He continued : “If this is possible, it would be the first
time that it’s a full stadium. We had a great experience
against Leicester and we could feel what difference it will
make to our sport and to the game.
“We can’t wait to experience it again but we have a long
pre-season to go and there’s quite a lot of days in
