Former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was relieved of his duties as Chelsea manager on Monday morning, despite guiding the team to a 3-1 victory over Luton Town in the FA Cup on Sunday.

Tuchel has since been appointed to take charge of Chelsea, with the Blues boss mandated with the task of rescuing the season for Chelsea, with Chelsea currently 10th in the league.

Meanwhile, former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has sent a slight warning to Tuchel, who was sacked by PSG just last month, that managing in the Premier League is not the same thing as coaching PSG.

When asked about the task Tuchel faces at Chelsea following his success at PSG, Mourinho replied: “You cannot compare the job at Paris Saint-Germain with a job in the Premier League.

“It’s not possible to compare.”

Mourinho had also revealed that he felt sorry for Lampard after his dismissal.

“I am always sad when a colleague loses his job,” said the Spurs boss.

“Frank is not just a colleague, he is an important person in my career, so I feel sorry he did.

“But it is the brutality of football, especially modern football, so when you become a manager you know that sooner or later it is going to happen to you.”
