“Lampard was too attack-minded. Tuchel suits Chelsea” – Former boss gives verdict

Former England boss Sam Allardyce has revealed former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was too attack-minded and believes Thomas Tuchel suits Chelsea better.

He told Sky Sports: “I’ve been massively impressed with Tuchel, especially considering he walked into the job not knowing many of the players.

“It just showed how well Chelsea had recruited before getting him there because everything about being a manager is linked to the quality of your players.

“Then you will see something that the other managers didn’t see.

“Frank was more attack-minded than Tuchel and a more defensive minded approach suited Chelsea better.

“They ended up going straight up in the league and winning the Champions League, so quality players were signed by Chelsea before he got there.

“We aren’t managers anymore, we are head coaches – we don’t have the ultimate decision on players being bought or sold anymore.”
