Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has stated that Romelu Lukaku is simpler to teach than Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
The German coach led Paris Saint-Germain to the UEFA Champions League final in 2020, but was fired the following season. After Frank Lampard’s difficult spell as manager at Chelsea came to an end, he took over as manager.
Since his appointment at Stamford Bridge, the former Borussia Dortmund coach has energised and reinvigorated the club, leading the Blues to European triumph in the Champions League and the UEFA Super Cup. Tuchel has continued to build on his success, as his club seems to be smashing every opponent that stands in their way.
With Romelu Lukaku joining the club for a sum of £97.5 million, the 46-year-old was supported in the transfer window. The Belgian striker has made a good start to life at the West London club, scoring four goals and assisting once in 11 appearances in all competitions so far this season.
The German coach remarked on the former Inter Milan striker, revealing that he was simpler to teach than some of Paris’s stalwarts:
“It’s easier to coach Lukaku than Neymar or Mbappe. They are two completely different clubs with regards to style and organization”
Neymar and Kylian Mbappe are now regarded as two of the finest footballers in the world. Tuchel has had the honor of coaching both of them and they are a fearsome attacking tandem. Despite this, he believes that coaching Lukaku was simpler, which says something about the Belgian striker’s mentality and talent in his field.
Tuchel has transformed the West London club into a force to be reckoned with. The boss has revived the Chelsea fans’ spirits, and they will be hopeful that the team can maintain their good run, with Lukaku spearheading the drive for trophies on all fronts.
