According to former Chelsea left-back Wayne Bridge, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel didn’t give the team talk for Chelsea’s Champions League final victory over Manchester City.
Bridge told Goal and SPOX: “Jose Mourinho could give very motivating team talks, but did not do that so often.
“Instead, Mourinho implemented a new system at Chelsea: he nominated players for team talks.
“That’s a great idea in my opinion. It was my turn before a game against Manchester United, shortly after I broke my leg. I was on crutches and tried to push the team.
“Since then, other coaches have also adopted this system. I heard that before Chelsea’s Champions League final victory over City, it was not Tuchel but the masseur Billy McCulloch who gave the final speech.”
