Chelsea legend irritated at Thomas Tuchel ways
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has already started looking into blues legend Alan Hudson, as the former midfielder revealed in his recent interview with CaughtOffside.
The German tactician recently replaced Frank Lampard and is still unbeaten in his time at Stamford Bridge.
Just last week, Hudson praised Tuchel’s “great management” for his no-nonsense approach to young Callum Hudson-Odoi.
However, it appears that Hudson also has some reservations about Chelsea’s overall style of play after a boring 0-0 draw with Manchester United over the weekend.
The former England international did not hold back in his assessment of Chelsea’s game and slammed Tuchel for seeming to prevent players from expressing themselves on the field as he believes it is increasingly common in modern play.
“I didn’t think either side deserved the win just because of their lack of creation,” Hudson told CaughtOffside. “I did a podcast on Peter Osgood that morning and after an hour I thought he was going crazy for the lack of service.
“It seemed to me that Chelsea, who had United where they wanted them, had enough ideas on how to get them down. I may be a little critical here, but that’s what happens in the modern game. There used to be a fear of relegation of the lower teams, but it has spread across the league.
