Former West Ham defender Anton Ferdinand has hailed Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel for the work he has done in the Chelsea team.

Some players have come back to the life since the appointment of Thomas Tuchel, with the likes of Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, Cesar Azpilicueta, Marcos Alonso and Jorginho now looking in their best shape.

More recently, Callum Hudson-Odoi who had been struggling for his best form since his Achilles injury in 2019 has looked dangerous and lively in recent games, and Anton Ferdinand has put that on the technical and tactical ability of the Chelsea boss.

“They’ve got a manager in Tuchel who’s technically, tactically aware. He doesn’t leave any stone unturned,” Anton Ferdinand said on his brother Rio Ferdinand’s Vibe with Five YouTube channel.

“He can look at something and change; I think it’s fantastic.

“Look at Hudson-Odoi, who’s been out in the cold for many, many weeks.

“Comes in and scores two (only one against Norwich). It’s fantastic.

“That tells you his man-management is on point because you’ve got a player who’s been out in the cold, who’s brought back into the fold, and he’s playing for him.

“I think that’s the difference between a lot of the top teams.”
