Former MU player, Rio Ferdinand took his hat off for Chelsea. For him, the Blues will be a strong candidate to win the Premier League.
Since Thomas Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard in the managerial chair at the end of January, Chelsea have slowly appeared violent. Chelsea is able to poke into the top four of the Premier League in order to secure a top four position.
Tuchel is also able to bring Chelsea to the FA Cup final to face Leicester City on Saturday (15/5). Also, Tuchel took Chelsea to the Champions League final against Manchester City at the end of this May.
Rio Ferdinand, the football pundit and former Manchester United player, was so impressed with Chelsea’s game. For him, now Mason Mount et al are playing confidently and mercilessly.
“Chelsea now have the quality to play at the highest level. Thomas Tuchel makes every line appear confident, from goalkeeper to striker,” said Ferdinand as quoted by the Mirror.
“Chelsea are so powerful and in control of the match. Their possession of the ball averages 60 percent. They are so tough,” he continued
Chelsea is filled with young potential players. The presence of several senior players such as Cesar Azpilicueta to Thiago Silva is able to provide their own colors.
“Did you look at Chelsea’s game statistics under manager Thomas Tuchel? I’m sure they are candidates for the Premier League title next season,” said Ferdinand.
“Obviously, Chelsea stands out in the two most important things, namely a few conceded goals and a lot of chances,” he concluded.
