He has kept the character he had as a major part as a part of his character as a mentor, which has propelled we all. 

"He submits himself with all that he has. Preparing is continually difficult and not quite the same as last season." Lampard is clearly not, at this point responsible for Chelsea yet Kovacic had a lot of time to work with the previous club-record goalscorer, who he says techniques are like Zidane's, so that can just assist Thomas Tuchel with getting ready what is set to be a blockbuster two-legged issue in the semi finals.
