Former Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has hailed Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel for his impact on the team after replacing Frank Lampard in January.

Lampard was sacked in January and Tuchel helped turn Chelsea’s fortunes around with a top-four finish and by winning the Champions League with a 1-0 victory over Manchester City.

According to Giroud, Tuchel improved the team’s confidence when he took over from Lampard last season.

He told Tribal Football: “Tuchel brought serenity and confidence to the team again by being successful.

“It is always easier when you win games, so we built that confidence step by step, and with the philosophy of his game playing a 3-4-3, with the great players we had, his ideas fit perfectly to the team.

“I think we finished strong and solid, and in the end we qualified fourth and won the Champions League so what more can you say.”
