Tuchel “axe” the fines that Lampard imposed on Chelsea players.

Published on


Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchal has removed the fines that were imposed on Chelsea players during Lampard’s tenure in a move of giving players room to police themselves.

Lampard’s timekeeping discipline saw him introduce a strict system of fines to players who arrived late on training.

Players were fined a penalty of £20, 000 whenever they appeared late for training during Lampard’s tenure. The German said he wasn’t aware of such fines but unlike his predecessor, he trusts his players to show up in time, terming them as a family.

Thomas Tuchel has also made changes to overnight stays in hotels The former PSG boss has dramatically cut back on these overnight stays even before the club’s away games fixtures to allow his players to have more time with their families. He believes a happy family makes a player happy and more successful.

Tuchel admits of being “a bit unfair” on Christian Pulisic. 

Thomas Tuchel is an overachiever! Chelsea are different beasts! 

Tuchel however explained that he was not against fines. He, however, advocated for his players to police themselves arguing that he is not anybody’s police. He asked the senior players to live by example and show others how to live at the club.

Tuchel feels that a matter of fines should be players’ issues. He said:

“If they organize this with fines then they can have a nice dinner or a nice holiday together. It’s on them. This is how we do stuff.”
