He laid the foundation – Tuchel pays tribute to the former Chelsea manager
Posted On May 12, 2021
Chelsea current manager Thomas Tuchel has paid tribute to his predecessor, Frank Lampard, for his good work before being replaced at Stamford Bridge.
Keeping in mind that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich handed Lampard a sack letter after the Blues dropped from the top four on the league table, the Blues would continue to sign German international Tuchel as his replacement.
However, since Tuchel’s arrival as manager at Chelsea, there has been a huge change in the Blues team.
Some of the achievements under Tuchel include returning to the top four at the Premier League table, making it the final of the FA Cup and UEFA Champions League.
Despite all this, Tuchel has refused to attribute the successes to himself when he praised Lampard for laying the foundation on which he builds.
Tuchel said, “So he laid the groundwork to get to the final and I will never forget it. We are not ashamed or afraid to say this out loud. And it felt like that the first day I came in here.
“I know Frank created his legacy here at Chelsea as a player and then tried to make it even bigger as a coach. And yet it had nothing to do with me, but we are well aware that we have entered the second half of the season and have tried to do the job he has started. ”
