, Chelsea’s third option goalkeeper has spoken about the differences between Thomas Tuchel and Frank Lampard. Tuchel’s side is yet to be defeated since his arrival and they just recently eliminated

Willy Caballero insists that the approach of Tuchel and Lampard is very different and that

Chelsea

’s former manager addressed players in a more direct way.

"Obviously talking about the coach, what one does well and what the other does well, is uncomfortable,"

Caballero told

90min

,

"because they are there for something. If we have to have them as coaches, it is because they are good. They convince you of the football they want to carry out and we are the workers, the ones who carry out that plan.

"Undoubtedly, with Frank, we had a more direct idea of the game, basically English football. To attack fast, attack on the wings, move centrally or attack on one side and finish on the other but with quite a bit of verticality. The football he liked was very dizzying, with quick movements of the ball. He also liked attacking and counter-attacking.

"Now with Tuchel, it's more about combining, playing with the ball. We create more. He almost tells us how the match will develop, where the opponent's key aspects are, their strengths and their weaknesses.

"With his ideas, from how he has achieved his teams to play well, he says to us what players we would need to be more involved in order to play brighter and follow his plan. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but the idea of playing [is there]."
