Thomas Tuchel has named two former Chelsea stars he would want to work with in the future, with iconic goalkeeper Petr Cech and legendary striker Didier Drogba getting the nod.

The Blues won the Champions League last season, beating Manchester City in the final, and emulating the efforts of Roberto Di Matteo's side, who lifted the trophy for the first time in the club's history in 2012.

Tuchel has named two players from that team he would like to include in his current squad. When by Chelsea's official website to name the legends he would sign if presented with a time machine, Tuchel said: "Tough question! I work every day with Petr Cech and he’s great to have around, so I’ll choose Petr with all of his experience.

"He works here as a Technical Advisor but he also helps out sometimes with our goalkeepers and I think it would have been fun to have coached him as a player. I watched a documentary about him and Didier Drogba recently and both of them had such fantastic winning mentalities when they were playing, so focused and dedicated and for sure, they would be an asset to any team."

Cech made 494 appearances for Chelsea, winning four Premier League and FA Cup titles, three League Cups, the Champions League, and the Europa League, while Drogba only missed winning the Europa League with the Blues.
