Chelsea make £1m FA Cup final promise to players if Thomas Tuchel can spoil Liverpool quadruple
Chelsea look set to do everything they can to rain on Liverpool’s parade this season, with incentives in places to spoil the Red’s quadruple
Chelsea players will split £1 million if they manage to spoil Liverpool’s quadruple with an FA Cup final win at Wembley, according to MailPlus. Jurgen Klopp’s side remain in contention to become the first English side to accomplish such a feat.
The report claims that Thomas Tuchel’s squad will ‘activate an aggregate bonus’ of one-million pounds should they wreck the Red’s feat. And, the Blues will undoubtedly be keen to do so and avenge their Carabao Cup sorrows.
MailPlus add that the aforementioned cash will be distributed on a pro-rata basis among the team, with the sum that each player receives correlative to their appearances and involvement in the triumph. Chelsea’s bonus system is believed to be one of the most lucrative across European football, despite restrictions in place at the club.
Chelsea have set out rewards to spoil Liverpool claiming their feat, though there are no bonuses in places for Champions League qualification, according to reports. Nonetheless, Tuchel’s side will be keen to start as they mean to go on ahead of the club’s first FA Cup final under new stewardship. The two sides are set to lock horns on May 14.
The west Londoners have fallen at the last hurdle in each of their previous two attempts in the competition, losing to Arsenal and Leicester City. Chelsea made a habit of walking up Olympic Way throughout Roman Abramovich’s tenure and Bohely will be keen to follow suit, though this time with a winner’s medal in hand.
Speaking ahead of the FA Cup final, Thomas Tuchel explained how his side are looking forward to the bout irrespective of Liverpool’s impressive displays this season.
“I don’t care about their other titles,” the German said. “We lost, of course, the final. We gave everything in that final as you know, it was a big match that went until the very last penalty.
“Of course, we were unlucky and lost it. We want to turn things around. It will not give us the Carabao Cup title back but we are here and were here last season in the FA Cup final and that means an unbelievable lot to us.”
Tuchel added by talking up the occasion, indirectly emphasising the importance of the FA Cup to Boehly. The Chelsea boss said: “It’s the FA Cup, the most prestigious, most traditional cup in the world and played at Wembley.
“There are not a lot of bigger games to be part of and it’s why we are grateful and we will be well prepared. We play against one of the strongest teams in the world which are in outstanding form given their results. So it will be a tough one and we will try to make life hard for them.”
