CHELSEA: Lampard Sends Goodluck Message To Tuchel (Read it Here)



The club legend was dismissed by owner Roman Abramovich following a woeful run of form that left Chelsea in ninth place in the Premier League.

But on Thursday he was asked about his plans for the club for the first time and offered fans an interesting insight. Tuchel revealed:

He said: ‘I hope not (backlash from supporters) because that would be hard on the team.

‘The fans are so close and behind the team, it makes a big difference. I know it was a big disappointment for the fanbase that Frank was sacked and I said before, I have the biggest respect.

‘I was a huge fan of Frank as a player. I had a message to wish me all the best.

‘The club made clear to me this is not my fault, I cannot change the situation for him.

‘The decision was made and I was handed the opportunity.’

Tuchel is the 11th permanent manager appointed by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich since the Russian billionaire bought the club back in 2003.

The German was a serial winner with Paris Saint-Germain in France and knows only trophies will keep him in a job at Stamford Bridge.

He added: ‘The club made it very clear, Chelsea is about results.

‘We always try to bring performance, develop players, improve players, increase their value as well as strong performances.

‘In the end, I am very realistic, I am in a club whose DNA is to win. I am here to challenge for every trophy we play for.

Tuchel revealed earlier this week that he has waited ‘many years’ to work with Kante and outlined his plans for the Frenchman’s position.

He wants to use him as a ‘double six’ with somebody alongside him at the base of midfield, instead of the singular defensive midfield role he has been occupying recently
