Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has revealed that he asked the board if they were sure about sacking Frank Lampard, before he replaced the former England midfielder.

Lampard, who won 11 major trophies as a player at Stamford Bridge, was sacked in January after 18 months in charge.

During his time as manager, he led the Blues to the Champions League knockout stages twice, as well as a top-four Premier League finish and an FA Cup final.

In an interview with Sky Sports ahead of Chelsea’s trip to Arsenal on Sunday, Tuchel said: “I actually said to the board, ‘are you sure of doing this? Because they will not like you. Maybe he deserves more time.’ Because when I think of Chelsea I think about Frank Lampard, John Terry, Petr Cech, Didier Drogba.

“I think about him in the very first moment because he embodies everything that Chelsea is: hard work, aggressive player, big leader but at the same time a normal guy on the pitch and such a team player. A true, true legend.

“But I clearly understood the choice was more or less made and it was take it or leave it.”
