Despite a minor blip in form towards the end of September, former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has backed Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel.
In an interview with BT Sport (via the Sun), Ferdinand expressed his concerns about Chelsea’s recent back-to-back defeats. Manchester City defeated the Blues in the Premier League, and Juventus defeated them in the Champions League. “This is the conundrum Tuchel must solve,” Ferdinand said. He’s had his way with everything. He hasn’t been in a situation where his team has been questioned. His front players (at Juve) lacked the spark. ”
However, Ferdinand remains convinced that Thomas Tuchel is the best man for the job after Chelsea’s Champions League triumph last season. He also believes that the German tactician should be given unlimited time. “I don’t have any concerns about Thomas Tuchel,” Ferdinand added. I think he’s fantastic, and given what he’s accomplished with a Champions League-winning team, he deserves all the credit. ”
