Thomas Tuchel has refused to take all the credit for Chelsea's Champions League progress to the final this season.
The Blues will face their Premier League rivals, Manchester City, in the final of the European competition billed for Istanbul on May 29.
Despite doing an awesome job since he took charge of the club in January, the German-born tactician believes Frank Lampard laid a very good foundation for him while he was the boss.
Tuchel insisted that he recognised the work his predecessor had done and he just had to continue from there according to Sky Sport.
"You can only arrive in a Champions League final if you make it through the group stage and Frank had an amazing record in the group stage. This lays the foundations for getting to the final and I will never forget this.
"From the first day when I came in here, I was aware that Frank created his own legacy at Chelsea and it is well deserved. When I came in it was halfway through the season and it was about continuing the job he had done."
Meanwhile, the venue of the final which has been scheduled for Istanbul could change due to the rise in the number of COVID-19 cases in the country.
