The German wrote his name in the history books, as just the second manager, after Roberto Di Matteo, to ever guide Chelsea to a Champions League final.
And while 2012’s run possessed more drama, last night’s Blues performance was full of control and poise.
At the heart of it was the outstanding Kante, with the Frenchman playing an instrumental role in both goals.
Upon leaving the Bridge in his Mini, the popular midfielder was mobbed by raucous Chelsea fans celebrating their 2-0 win.
And the 30-year-old offered up a wave from his wheel, which only heightened the incredible celebrations.
Boss Tuchel was next to be serenaded, with fans cheering his name as he left the stadium.
The player themselves also celebrated wildly in the dressing room after the match.
Edouard Mendy and Mason Mount shared videos from the behind the scenes party on Instagram.
