Chelsea play host to Southampton at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, and the game will be a little reunion for the Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl.
Hasenhuttl knows Chelsea manager’s playing system, having also managed in the German Bundesliga, and he also managed RB Leipzig as well.
Hasenhuttl is also familiar with Tuchel’s assistant Zsolt Low, whom he worked with at RB Leipzig between 2016 and 2018 before Low eventually joined Tuchel’s coaching staff at PSG.
Hasenhuttl has admitted that Tuchel knows his playing style, but is more wary about Low who knows his tactics very well, having been a part of his coaching staff.
“I don’t only know him [Thomas Tuchel] I know his assistant [Zsolt Low] very well,” Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl said ahead of the Premier League clash with Chelsea on Saturday.
“He is fantastic and I worked very well with him for two years in Leipzig. He knows me very well and knows the way we play very well, that doesn’t make it easy for us to be honest.”
