Former Stuttgart star Andreas Beck has heaped praise on Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel.

Beck played for Tuchel with Stuttgart's youth team.

He told Goal: "I really admire his brain. Thomas was one of the best coaches I had.

"He teaches you how to play, tactically and technically. Then, there's his psychological coaching, which is very demanding. He asks you to give everything.

"Some coaches say: 'Go and enjoy yourself' but Thomas says: 'Enjoy yourself but by giving everything.' This is the mentality needed to make champions and win titles.

"This was the mentality I took with me when I won my titles at Stuttgart and Besiktas. It is the same mentality as teams like Bayern Munich.

"Yes, you have fun and enjoy it, but Tuchel is about going for it, fighting for it until you are exhausted and asking you to enjoy that process.

"Thomas even asked that of the kids and he asked for it every single day: 'Okay, go and do your simple passing exercises but always approach it like it is the last pass of your career.

"Each session was intense. It was f**king hard work but you had to give it all to be successful."
