Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel talked about Frank Lampard’s former coach.
“I admit that the sacking of Frank was a major disappointment for the club’s fans. I have a lot of respect for him. When Frank was a player, I was a fan myself,” Tuchel told the official Chelsea website.
“It was interesting to see him play, to see his personality on the pitch. Throughout the entire 90 minutes, he was a key figure and showed what it means to be a Chelsea player, what pressure means, determination, and the desire to win.
I respect him as a man, I respect everything that he did, and when I got a message from him this morning, my respect increased. It was a personal message in which he wished me all the best and wrote that when there is a chance, maybe we’ll meet in the future.”
