'I hated every minute of Tuchel's debut'

English Premier League

Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino was not impressed with Thomas Tuchel's first game in charge of the Blues this week.

Chelsea began life under Tuchel with an underwhelming goalless draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday evening.

There have been a number of former players who have criticised the appointment of the German tactician in the last few days, with some feeling Frank Lampard should have been given more time.

“I was surprised by his comments even before the game started. He said it was probably one of the most difficult selections I’ve ever had to make," Cascerino told TalkSPORT.

“I was thinking, ‘have you not watched a certain amount of videos before you coach your first game?’

“Watch their last ten games and you might have got a good idea what their best team is! I found it a very strange comment.

“And the performance? I hated every minute of it!

“Especially the first half. I could have gone and put the kettle on and made a cup of tea when Chelsea started to move.

“I probably could have got to my tea and started drinking it by the time they got to the 18-yard box.”
