The former Manchester United defender couldn’t anymore let his hate for the Blues over shadow the truth
Ferdinand after the game couldn’t hold back his words but admit on how Chelsea’s investment in the academy has started paying off greatly.
According to the 43-year-old, Chelsea have finally landed the perfect thing they needed to activate the talents waiting in their Academy.
Blues made a bold decision to sack club Legend, Frank Lampard after series of disappointing losses and then appointed former PSG manager, Thomas Tuchel.
The German tactician arriving Stamford Bridge implemented a significant change right from the first game and has since then gone 50 games with outstanding results including 31 clean sheets and suffering only 7 defeats.

According to Rio Ferdinand, a manager as Thomas Tuchel is actually what Chelsea needs to use their Academy stars aright.
“For years Chelsea have invested in youth but didn’t have the managers who are as confident as Frank and Thomas now,” Ferdinand said.
“The odd one might have come in but never stayed around. Reece James has been phenomenal.
“The first three scorers tonight against Juventus, no mugs, are graduates from the Cobham conveyor belt.
“They’ve persevered and they have worked it out. They are in a positive mindset with it, their youth system looks so clear for them. They can see a pathway to the first team.”
