Emma Hayes is dreaming of Chelsea sealing a historic Champions League double by becoming kings and queens of club football in Europe.
And the Kingsmeadow chief hailed Thomas Tuchel, 47, for buying into the winning mentality being encouraged by the Blues.
Hayes, 44, said: “I had a lovely encounter with Thomas Tuchel, he’s a fantastic guy, really open-minded and progressive coach.
“There’s a reason why the men’s team are performing like they are and to mirror that success, side by side, how fantastic that would be.
“I’ve always said this about Chelsea, we always talk about winning in this place, that’s what comes with the territory.
“We don’t mind the pressure, the expectations, the tags, the titles, whatever comes with it, we just know we’re a club that wants to be in winning positions.
“It’s great to think that both the men’s and women’s teams have reached these stages.
“But as I’ll always say we’re about winning things, not just getting here.”
