Thomas Tuchel has revealed that ahead of the FA Cup final against Leicester on Saturday, he will set aside some minutes to meditate.
Tuchel believes the meditation session helps him calm his nerves and will set aside 20 minutes on Saturday morning for that.
“I wake up early and do some sports and some meditation and then be ready to prepare the first meeting,” Tuchel said of his routine ahead of the FA Cup final on Saturday.
“You try to get into some routines, sometimes I try to run after matches when they are late, to get rid of energy to sleep better.
“Sometimes I am very disciplined, sometimes not so.
“I think it is normal to be excited and nervous, sometimes more or less so, and sometimes it can catch me before normal matches, and sometimes you can feel calm even if the pressure is on.
“It’s just 20 minutes, breathe in, breathe out. And try hard to do nothing in the room.
“Some years ago I came into this. It helped me, it was a nice experience. When I was a coach at Dortmund, or maybe between Mainz and Dortmund.
“Sometimes I am disciplined and do it twice a day, other times I forget and fo without it for couple of weeks. It is nothing special. It is breathing and trying hard to do nothing. “
