‘You cannot compare the job at Paris Saint-Germain with a job in the EPL’ – Mourinho reacts to Chelsea’s appointment of Thomas Tuchel

1 Mins read

Jose Mourinho has warned Chelsea not to expect guaranteed success from Thomas Tuchel due to his record at Paris Saint-Germain.

Following Frank Lampard’s sacking earlier this week, Tuchel was officially appointed as Chelsea’s new manager and took charge of his first training session on Tuesday evening.

Chelsea’s hierarchy had been keen to target a German-speaking manager in order to help bring the best out of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz, who has particularly struggled since his £71 million move from Bayer Leverkusen.

And Tuchel offers Chelsea a wealth of experience having won the DFB Pokal with Borussia Dortmund, as well as two Ligue 1 titles with PSG.

But when asked about the task Tuchel faces at Chelsea following his success at PSG, Mourinho replied: “You cannot compare the job at Paris Saint-Germain with a job in the Premier League. ‘It’s not possible to compare.”

Speaking earlier this week following Lampard’s dismissal, Mourinho believed Chelsea’s decision highlighted the ‘brutality of football’.

“I am always sad when a colleague loses his job,” said the Spurs boss.

“Frank is not just a colleague, he is an important person in my career, so I feel sorry he did.

“But it is the brutality of football, especially modern football, so when you become a manager you know that sooner or later it is going to happen to you.”
