Emma Hayes has found a coaching ally in Thomas Tuchel as the two highly respected managers bid to make Chelsea great again in a unique Champions League double.
Chelsea Women look to overturn a 2-1 first leg semi-final deficit when they host Bayern Munich on Sunday ahead of Tuchel's men trying to book their place in a final when they host Real Madrid on Tuesday.
It will be a footballing first for Chelsea or any other club to have both sides in the final together and Hayes says she and Tuchel would not have it any other way.

'I have always said at Chelsea we always talk about winning in this place. That is what comes with the territory. We do not mind the pressure, expectations, the tags or titles or whatever comes with it.
'We just know we are a club that wants to be in winning positions and it is great to think both the men's and women's teams have reached these stages. That said, we are about winning things not just getting here.'Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
