Former assistant boss Jody Morris sent his congratulation message to Chelsea as the Blues went on to win the Champions League.

Jody Morris who worked with the Chelsea academy before going on to assist Lampard, revealed his pride in seeing some of the academy boys celebrating Chelsea’s Champions League success.

Mason Mount, Reece James, Tammy Abraham, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Billy Gilmour, Tino Anjorin and Andreas Christensen all posed for a photo with the Champions League trophy, and Morris response was ‘proud’.

Meanwhile, Thomas Tuchel has hailed Frank Lampard and his coaching staff for the work they did with the team before his appointment.

“Frank had an amazing record in the group stage of the Champions League,” said Tuchel.

“[He] won all the FA Cup games. He’s laid the foundation to get us to finals and I will never forget it, we don’t feel ashamed or have any fear to speak it out loud.

“It felt like that on the first day. I am aware Frank created his own legacy as a player and make it bigger as a coach. We stepped in halfway through the season and tried to fulfil the job he had began.

“Frank resembles everything you think about Chelsea. You think about Frank Lampard, the way he is, how he played football.

“This shows his character and the message he sent was a pleasure to receive. We had a message a couple of days after we arrived but nothing more.”
