Jorginho criticizes Frank Lampard’s long ball tactic and hails the changes brought by Thomas Tuchel.

Chelsea struggled for results under Frank Lampard even after making top-class signings. Since Tuchel took over, the Blues have made an impressive 13 games unbeaten run, with the team yet to suffer its first defeat since the German took over. Jorginho has come out to criticize his former manager tacticsas the cause of Chelsea’s struggles.

This new reformation has seen Thomas Tuchel team regain its Champions League qualification position, and also reach the quatre finals of the Champions League this season.

Jorginho has taken a dig into his former boss, Frank Lampard, for his long ball tactic and praised the new tactic brought in by their new coach. While speaking to Chelsea’s official website, the Italian said he is ‘enjoying’ the new style of play. Jorginho is usually paired in the middle, playing with Mateo Kovacic or N’golo Kante.

Praising the new reformation under the new management, he said:

“The coach wants us having control of the game, playing from behind, even when the pressure comes.
“So, for me, it’s a good way to play football that I like and enjoy, and I think it’s better for my characteristics than playing long balls, and second balls.

“When it’s Kova [Mateo Kovacic], his style is to play short, to come, so I know if he wants to play one-two or when he wants some space to move forward and to dribble.
“So, I just try to help him, either give him space or come over to help him and give him an option – whatever he needs to get out of the situation.

“With Kante, it’s kind of the same. When you play with your mates, you need to understand each other and understand their characteristics as well. So, I know that Kante has big power, so I tell him when he can turn.

“With Kante, it’s more about talking: ‘Turn!’ ‘Man on!’ or talking so he knows I’m there for the short pass. So, I just try to give him an option to do a one-two and get out.
“Oh yes, big brains [Kante and Kovacic have big brains]. They have more legs than me, though!”
