Ex-Dortmund striker warns Chelsea players about Thomas Tuchel

Ex-Borussia Dortmund striker Adrian Ramos has warned Chelsea‘s players that Thomas Tuchel ‘can get loud very quickly’ if they fail to follow his instructions.

Tuchel has made an impressive start to his time at Stamford Bridge after he replaced Frank Lampard as manager at the end of January.

Chelsea remain unbeaten during Tuchel’s reign and have won all but three of their 11 games since the German took charge.

Tuchel has already shown a ruthless side by substituting Callum Hudson-Odoi just 31 minutes after he was brought on in the 1-1 draw with Southampton last month.

And Ramos, who played under Tuchel at Dortmund, admits his former manager will have no hesitation in criticising his Chelsea players in the dressing room.

‘Thomas is obsessed with football and places extremely high demands on his players, especially from a tactical point of view,’ Ramos told Goal.

‘Anyone who does not meet these requirements has a problem.

‘Then Thomas can get very loud very quickly and sometimes says things that hurt.

‘Unfortunately, it is normal that one or the other in this business quickly feels trodden on, but I never had the feeling that he was trying to attack someone personally with his criticism.[metro-tag-post-strip]

‘I got on well with his style. Others don’t.

‘One thing is clear to me: if I become a coach one day, I will certainly not yell as much as Thomas.’
