Jose Mourinho and Thomas Tuchel will go head to head in Chelsea’s clash with Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday evening in the Premier League. Mourinho has stated that the Premier League is extremely different and more competitive than the French League as he called the English league the most competitive in the world. The new Chelsea boss, on the other hand, also agreed completely that it is different here.
Tuchel accepted all of Mourinho’s claims about the differences between the French and the English league. The former Paris Saint Germain coach was sacked by the French giants despite winning multiple league titles with them and taking the club to their first-ever UEFA Champions League final. Tuchel is clearly a fantastic choice for Chelsea after the departure of Frank Lampard who was sacked after having done a mediocre job so far in the Premier League.
Mourinho and Tuchel both had nothing but high praises for each other as the Portuguese international was termed as a ”winner” by Tuchel. The former Borussia Dortmund coach accepted all of Jose’s claims about the differences in France and in England. The Spurs’ Coach had nothing but praise in return for Tuchel as he said he’s a ”fantastic” coach.
The Tottenham boss, however, took jibes at Chelsea as he stated that managing Chelsea is ”not hard”. The former Manchester United boss did not seem thrilled about the sacking of Frank Lampard as he said that’s what happens at Chelsea. He praised Frank Lampard for what a good job he has done with the team and he praised the good potential that the current young bunch of players at Chelsea possess.
Chelsea will play Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday as both are on 33 points each. However, Jose’s team does have a game in hand as the Spurs have played one less. Both coaches are looking forward to beating each other in this Premier League classic.
