Chelsea have a secret weapon for their Premier League game against Southampton at the weekend, and it is not Thomas Tuchel or any of their players.
When Frank Lampard got sacked, the majority of his coaching staff went with him. Naturally, Tuchel arrived and bought his own coaching staff.
Chelsea have colossal Inter Milan defender ‘high’ on their list of summer targets, read more here.
Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl is very aware of one of them, and believes he could cause them issues at the weekend.
Hassenhuttl worked alongside Chelsea assistant coach Zsolt Low at RB Leipzig, and he fears that he knows exactly how he likes to play and setup and this could be used to Chelsea’s advantage.
The Saints boss knows that he has a tough game coming up on Saturday anyway, but he fears that with the knowledge that Low holds on him, things will become more difficult.
"I know Zsolt Low very well.
"He is fantastic and I worked very well with him for two years in Leipzig. He knows me very well and knows the way we play very well, that doesn’t make it easy for us to be honest."
