Chelsea’s new manager, Thomas Tuchel, has been given first six months of his time to qualify the club for Champions League, Daily Star reports.
Tuchel replaces Blues legend, Frank Lampard on a two-and-a-half year contract.
And the former Paris Saint-Germain boss has enough time to settle at the Stamford Bridge.
Tuchel will jump straight in at the deep end and take charge when Chelsea host Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.
The German takes over with the Blues sitting 10th on the table, with just two wins in their last eight league games.
Despite this, the board is expecting big things from him in the short-term.
Tuchel has to ensure Chelsea finish in the top four or go on to win the Champions League, so they return to the competition next season.
The Blues face Atletico Madrid in the knockout stages next month.
