Frank Lampard, Chelsea’s immediate past boss, has thanked his successor, Thomas Tuchel, for praising his work during the first half of the 2020/2021 season.
Tuchel took over from Lampard in January and has led the Blues to FA Cup and Champions League finals.
In addition, the former PSG coach has almost assured a top-four finish in the Premier League.
He did, however, attribute the foundation Lampard laid as the reason for his success.

The immediate past manager of Chelsea, Frank Lampard, has expressed his gratitude to his successor, Thomas Tuchel, over his remarks praising his work in the first half of the 2020/2021 season.
Tuchel replaced Lampard in January and has led the Blues to the finals of the FA Cup and Champions League.
The former PSG boss has also all but sealed a top-four finish in the Premier League.
But he gave credit to the foundation Lampard laid, as the reason why he is thriving.
Lampard responded today, saying, “I enjoyed his (Tuchel’s) words last week.”
“I was glad to hear them because I believe they are right. I’m not really praising myself. But I’m sure if I were in his shoes, I’d say something similar, so he’s giving me credit for the first half of the season.
“He’s taken it on, and I’ll give him credit for that, because to reach two finals and be in contention for the top four, I know the fight from last year; we were in it last year, and it’s a tough battle, particularly in the final stretch.
