Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has revealed the secret to Chelsea’s transformation under Thomas Tuchel.

According to Rodgers, Tuchel’s experience of working with world-class players has helped Chelsea’s transformation after Frank Lampard’s sacking.

“Frank passed on a very strong squad of players and from his perspective he’ll go on to be a fantastic manager,” said Rodgers.

“Early in his career, he showed a great level at Derby and then moved to Chelsea. He did really well with a group of players he was still finding out about.

“But with Thomas coming in you see the benefit of experience. You see someone who has been around the game for a while, worked with top players.

“His philosophy is defined and that makes it easier when you go into a club and you have that philosophy you’ve spent 10-plus years defining and working, you go in and give real clarity and real purpose to the team if you know exactly what you want.

“You’re seeing his experience there in what he’s been able to do with structure. They are doing what top teams do.”
