Olivier Giroud says Thomas Tuchel brought ‘serenity and confidence’ back to Chelsea after the sacking of Frank Lampard… as the Frenchman believes the change to a 3-4-3 system suited the players ‘perfectly’

  • Thomas Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard as manager back in January 
  • He turned their fortunes around leading them to the Champions League 
  • Giroud says Tuchel brought Chelsea’s confidence back after Lampard’s exit 


Former Chelsea star Olivier Giroud says Thomas Tuchel helped improve the team’s confidence when he took over from Frank Lampard last season.

The German arrived at Chelsea midway through the season at a stage where the club were sitting just ninth in the Premier League table.

Lampard was sacked in January and Tuchel helped turn their fortunes around with a top-four finish and by winning the Champions League with a 1-0 victory over Manchester City.

Giroud who left the club in the summer and now plays for AC Milan, has praised the impact Tuchel made.

He told Tribal Football:  Tuchel brought serenity and confidence to the team again by being successful.

‘It is always easier when you win games, so we built that confidence step by step, and with the philosophy of his game playing a 3-4-3, with the great players we had, his ideas fit perfectly to the team.

‘I think we finished strong and solid, and in the end we qualified fourth and won the Champions League so what more can you say.’

Giroud netted the vital goal in a 1-0 victory away at Atletico Madrid in the Round of 16 clash of the Champions League with a stunning bicycle kick.

The World Cup winner scored 39 goals in 119 appearances for Chelsea after joining them from London rivals Arsenal.
