Chelsea football manager Thomas Tuchel was spotted learning the basics of hurling in Co Kildare this week.
The European champions are currently holding pre-season training at Carton House as the 2021/22 Premier League season gets underway in a little over three weeks’ time.
The footage below shows Tuchel being persuaded to try a few pucks after picking up a hurl and taking on board instructions on how to swing it.
Thomas Tuchel has a history in black and amber too… he’d have been a great hurling bainisteoir. pic.twitter.com/oOxJBVqiPy— Ronan Murphy (@swearimnotpaul) July 21, 2021
