The Best FIFA Men's Coach Thomas Tuchel wants next major international title with the "Blues"

Chelsea FC are the clear favorites going into the tournament and should be highly motivated, as the FIFA Club World Cup trophy is one of the few that the "Blues" still miss in their great collection of titles. In any case, the statistics favor the team of the three German internationals Kai Havertz, Antonio Rüdiger and Timo Werner, because in the past eight editions, the team from Europe has always triumphed. The most recent was FC Bayern Munich, defeating Mexican representative Tigres 1-0 in last year's final – at that time still under the direction of Hansi Flick. This was the second time since 2013 that the Munich team had been crowned Club World Cup champions, while Real Madrid is the record winner with a total of four tournament victories. Chelsea FC are now looking to add their name to the prestigious list of champions, and for the newly-crowned The Best FIFA Men's Coach Thomas Tuchel it would be the next major international title. The Final of the FIFA Club World Cup will be broadcast live on Saturday, February 12, on SPORT1, also with a 30-minute preliminary coverage starting at 5:00 p.m. Again, presenter Jana Wosnitza welcomes the audience from the studio, Jochen Stutzky is the commentator.
