Rio Ferdinand identifies Lampard's mistake as Blues manager

Rio Ferdinand believes Thomas Tuchel is doing a spectacular job at Chelsea.

Frank Lampard was sacked in January after a poor run of results which saw the club ninth in the Premier League table.

In less than two months of taking charge as Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has taken the Blues to the top four and is unbeaten in the last 14 games.

Man United legend Rio Ferdinand believes Lampard failed to find the right balance between youth and experience during his tenure.

“I think bringing experience back into the team and giving them more responsibility has been a big difference to Frank’s [tenure],” Ferdinand said of Tuchel’s start at Stamford Bridge on his Vibe With FIVE show.

“‘Frank definitely went with the younger players and I think that knocked a few of the older players’ noses out of joint and they may have reacted negatively towards that, and that created a problem.

“But these players have come back in. Tuchel has rounded up the experienced players and told them, ‘You’re here, you’re my mainstay and the younger players you’re going to be a part of that as well.”
