Liverpool legend Graeme Souness has slammed Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta over his comments claiming everything has improved under new boss Thomas Tuchel.

Chelsea have enjoyed a revival under Tuchel, winning six of our last eight matches, including victory over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

Ahead of Chelsea’s clash with Atletico, Azpilicueta said: “Six weeks ago we weren’t at our best. Now with Tuchel everything has improved.

“The team has better feelings. Although the Premier has nothing to do with it, reaching the Champions League on a roll is good news.

“The solidity has recovered, fewer opportunities are granted and that speaks of the work of the group, from the first attacker to the last defender. With the new coach we try to control the games with and without the ball.”

Souness was to see Azpilicueta criticise Lampard and claims his comments were a sign of a ‘weak individual’.

Souness told The Times: “I always thought Cesar Azpilicueta was a proper professional, so I was also disappointed see him trotting out criticism of Frank after he was sacked.

“You see it every time a manager leaves a club and these are just weak individuals looking to excuse the poor performances they have produced.”
