Cesc Fabregas believes both Frank Lampard and Thomas Tuchel deserves praise for Chelsea’s recent success.
Despite failing to meet expectations as the Blues boss, Lampard is held at high regard by fans and ex-players and quite deservedly so.
Lampard managed Champions League qualification with a young crop of players and no star signings. It was only in his second season when results did not start to match up with the talent he had at hand. Thomas Tuchel came in to steady the ship and guided Chelsea to a brilliant Champions League triumph.
Speaking exclusive to German outlet SPOX, Fabregas said: “Tuchel came and raised the team to another level.
“After I left Chelsea, Gary Cahill, David Luiz and Eden Hazard also left. These are important names, important players – Also for the atmosphere in the locker room.
“Frank Lampard couldn’t sign a replacement because of the transfer ban. So it wasn’t that easy for him. He brought great players from the academy like Mason Mount, Reece James, Tammy Abraham, Billy Gilmour and all of them Player.
“We have to acknowledge everything Lampard has done for Chelsea.”
Fabregas definitely has a point that lot of fans choose to ignore. Lampard’s achievements should not get derailed based on a few bad months on the job.
