Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta has revealed the secret of Thomas Tuchel’s success as Chelsea boss.

Azpilicueta told The Guardian: “He is very specific, he goes into the detail.

“When you are at the highest level, every single metre can make a difference. We had a lot of potential and we have to express ourselves. We changed the system but he thought it was the best for the team.

“He is very expressive. His focus is in every action. When a player is out of position, he’s very demanding. You need everybody on the right spot every time. So he’s very active.

“Antonio (Conte) was very active as well. Obviously with the empty stadiums it’s easier to hear. In a full stadium I imagine it’s more difficult.”

Tuchel will hope to win his first trophy as Chelsea boss when the Blues face Leicester City in the FA Cup final today.
