It’s already looking like a successful season for Chelsea, as the Blues are in the final of two competitions.

Chelsea face Leicester City in the FA Cup final this weekend and Man City in the Champions League final at the end of the month.

Club legend Frank Lampard started the journey for Chelsea, but after a drop in form, he was sacked mid-way through the season, with Thomas Tuchel taking over in January.

Tuchel has spoken highly of Lampard’s achievement at the club and believes that he deserves some credit for starting the FA Cup and Champions League journey.

Ahead of the finals, Tuchel was asked whether he has had much contact with Lampard since taking over as Chelsea manager, but he revealed that they only had a chat upon his appointment:

Tuchel said: “No, just the message I talked about in the first week when he wished me all the best.

“It was a very nice and polite message that I was absolutely very happy about and showed me that Frank is like what you see from the outside and the inside he is one of the legacies and key fixtures of this club.

“He resembles everything about this club. When you think about Chelsea you think about Frank Lampard and the way he played football shows his character.

“It was a pleasure to receive this message so we had a quick chat after one or two days but since then no more.”
