Former Paris St-Germain and now the current Chelsea coach, Thomas Tuchel was appointed by the club after the Blues legend, Lampard was sacked on Monday. The 47-year-old Tuchel took charge of Wednesday’s 0-0 draw with Wolverhampton. Thereafter, he was presented to the media on Thursday.

Asked if he felt fans may show anger over Lampard’s sacking, the manager responded, “I hope not. Because it would be hard on the team”.

“The fans are so close and behind the team. It makes a big difference. I know it was a big disappointment for the fanbase that Frank was sacked and I have the biggest respect. I was a huge fan of Frank as a player”.

“The club made clear to me this is not my fault. Also, I cannot change the situation for him. The decision was made and I was handed the opportunity”.

Meanwhile, Tuchel revealed he had received a good luck message from Lampard who was in charge of the club for 18 months prior to his sacking. The new manager’s immediate task will be to improve the position of a club who are eighth in the Premier League after spending more than £220m during the summer transfer window.

Tuchel, who won the French title twice at PSG before his sacking in December said it was an “easy” choice to join Chelsea.

Currently, the former BVB coach is the fourth permanent manager in under five years. But, when asked if he feared being sacked at the club he responded, “yes and no”.

“When you sign for Chelsea, you sign for the hunger of titles. It doesn’t scare me. The club made it very clear. Chelsea is about results. We always try to bring performance, develop players, improve players and increase their value as well as produce strong performances”.

“In the end, I am very realistic. I am in a club whose DNA is to win. I am here to challenge for every trophy we play for. This year it is the Champions League and FA Cup. For the Premier League, it is not realistic”.
