Chelsea vs Leicester: Brendan Rodgers highlights Thomas Tuchel’s advantages over Lampard

Brendan Rodgers has highlighted the differences between Thomas Tuchel and Frank Lampard going into Leicester City’s FA final clash against Chelsea on Saturday.

According to the Leicester City boss, Thomas Tuchel’s experience of working with world-class players has helped the Blues’ transformation after Lampard’s sack.

Lampard was sacked and replaced with former Paris Saint-Germain boss, Tuchel in January.

And the former Borussia Dortmund manager has taken the club to finals of the Champions League and FA Cup and is also on course to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League.

Rodgers backed Lampard to become a ‘fantastic manager’ in the future but believes his successor’s clear vision has aided Chelsea’s improvement.

“Frank passed on a very strong squad of players and from his perspective he’ll go on to be a fantastic manager,’ Rodgers told the press ahead of Saturday’s showdown.

“Early in his career, he showed a great level at Derby and then moved to Chelsea. He did really well with a group of players he was still finding out about.

‘But with Thomas coming in you see the benefit of experience. You see someone who has been around the game for a while, worked with top players.

‘His philosophy is defined and that makes it easier when you go into a club and you have that philosophy you’ve spent 10-plus years defining and working, you go in and give real clarity and real purpose to the team if you know exactly what you want.

‘You’re seeing his experience there in what he’s been able to do with structure. They are doing what top teams do.’
