Keep reading to know Sissi Tuchel’s biography.
Sissi Tuchel’s husband was born 29 August 1973 in Krumbach, West Germany. Her man grew up playing soccer with TSV Krumbach and and FC Augsburg before making his professional debut with the Stuttgarter Kickers in 1992.
The former defender’s active career had seen him play only eight Bundesliga 2 games for Stuttgarter Kickers before a spell in the third division at Ulm. His career was cut short by a debilitating knee injury in 1998.
His playing career spanned from 1992 to 1998, most of it spent with SSV Ulm. Thomas holds a degree in economics.
Tuchel was promoted from Borussia Dortmund youth to head coach two days before the start of the 2009-10 season without any prior experience at Bundesliga level.
In his first season at Dortmund, Tuchel led the club to the quarter-final stage of the Europa League, where they were knocked out by his predecessor Klopp’s Liverpool.
Earlier this year, Dortmund qualified for the 2016 DFB-Pokal Final, however, they lost in the final to Bayern Munich.
From 2001-2008, he served as Mainz’s coach –taking them to the Europa League twice and setting a new Bundesliga record of seven successive league wins at the start of the 2010-11 season.
Tuchel began his coaching career in 2000 as head coach of the Under 19 of VfB Stuttgart. After five years he returned to his former club FC Augsburg, where he worked as youth team co-coordinator for three years. He also served as manager during one season at Augsburg.
As a coach, Sissi’s hubby is known for limiting his appearances in the media to fulfilling his contractual obligations during news conferences and pre- and post-match interviews on TV. He is under contract until 2018.
Sissi Tuchel seems to follow her husband’s lead. The wife and mother, also keeps things pretty tight lip. We do know however, they have been married since May 2009 and have since become the parents of two children.
Sissi Tuchel is the full-time-mommy of the couple’s two adorable daughters. She is the proud mom of six-year-old Emma and five-year-old Kim.
Being married to a sports coach and being a mother is quite a busy job. Sissi Tuchel is a pro by now. She has been through the relocating process a couple of times. Now add to that thought, two small daughters.
In August 2012, the Tuchels moved from their three-room apartment in Wiesbaden to a house in Mainz. In 2015, they moved to a new place in Munich.
Her hubby –who took a year off in 2014, said of spending time with his family
So far, my children knew only one dad, who is much in training and much on the road. Now suddenly I was much at home. And now it has become quite self-evident for the children that I am there.
Sissi’s man also said during an interview, for him, “being involved at home is important, it distracts me from football!”
