Thomas Tuchel and Frank Lampard

Former Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has praised Thomas Tuchel’s impact on the club since he arrived at Stamford Bridge back in late January.

Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard and had little time to change their fortunes as they started to fall out of contention for a top-four spot in the Premier League, while still in the FA Cup and Champions League.

The German led the Blues to both the final of the FA Cup and Champions League, winning the latter with an outstanding performance in Porto on May 29 against Manchester City.

Tuchel has been hailed by many and Cesc Fabregas has also joined in singing the praises of the blue boss.

Also, Fabregas spoke on the efforts of Lampard before Tuchel’s arrival and had an incline that the Blues would come out victorious in Portugal.

“With Chelsea, I left six months before Gary Cahill, David Luiz and Eden Hazard left. These are important names, important players in the dressing room and Frank Lampard couldn’t sign anyone (to replace them) because they had the ban. So he deserves credit as well for it.

“He took great players from the academy like Mason Mount, Reece James, Tammy Abraham, Billy Gilmour and all of these players. We have to appreciate all he has done.

“The team has reacted well and I believed they would do well against Man City.”
