Tuchel questioned Chelsea decision to sack Lampard before becoming Blues boss

 The German enjoyed a superb start to life at Stamford Bridge with Champions League glory but says he was unsure about the call to fire his predecessor

Thomas Tuchel has revealed that he questioned the decision of Chelsea's board to sack Frank Lampard last season when he was interviewed for the vacant managerial position.

The German succeeded the Blues legend at the helm at Stamford Bridge following a slow start to the 2020-21 campaign, and delivered a shock Champions League triumph just four months later.

Yet speaking ahead of this weekend's Premier League clash with Arsenal, the former Paris Saint-Germain boss has admitted that he had reservations about the role - and whether the club had got it right in parting ways with Lampard.
