Check out this clip of newly appointed Chelsea manager trying to rile up N’Golo Kanté after Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Newcastle on Monday.
Tuchel has had a very positive impact on Chelsea who have yet to lose since the German took over from former boss Frank Lampard.
Following The Blues win over the Magpies Tuchel went to Kanté at full-time and tried to get the French international a bit more animated and show physically that he was happy with the win.
In true Kanté style the World Cup winner just smiled and humbly walked off the pitch and back to the dressing room.

It’s not the first time Kanté was slightly embarrassed to be the centre of attention as after France’s World Cup victory in 2016 Kanté was too embarrassed to ask to hold the trophy to pose for a picture.
Tuchel won’t mind too much as Kanté does become animated once the whistle is blown and the French defensive midfielder has a reputation of being a nightmare to play against.
