Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has praised the atmosphere at Manchester United’s home ground, Old Trafford, according to Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick.
Rangnick told MUTV that he had loved standing on the touchline at Old Trafford in the run-up to his final home game as Manchester United manager: “I enjoyed it in most of the games, but clearly we had some games when we were just 1-0 up and threw away too many points.”
“It’s not fun in such moments, but the fans’ support is overwhelming, and it’s fantastic.” It’s one of the most important aspects of our club.
“At the stadium… Before the game, I chatted with Thomas Tuchel, who told me, “What a stadium, what an atmosphere,” which is fantastic for everyone. That was a lot of fun.”
Thomas Tuchel, on the other hand, would want to see a similar environment at Stamford Bridge, where Chelsea has struggled this season.
The Blues have struggled at home this season, and Tuchel has lamented his team’s struggles.
“It’s now a problem of motivating the players to keep continuing, and the supporters to keep pushing and hanging in there,” Tuchel said of Chelsea’s home form.
“We have a lot on which to develop and rely.” Now is not the time to be superstitious. Don’t put your faith in things that don’t exist. It’s a new challenge on top of that.”
