Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero has explained how Chelsea boss Frank Lampard immediately made a positive impression on the Chelsea squad, after directly speaking to the players at Cobham before heading out to Ireland.
According to Caballero, the way Lampard spoke to the squad on the first day of him meeting with the players was amazing.
Caballero told Chelsea’s official website: “It’s been superb with Frank so far. The way he spoke to us on the first day was amazing and he’s been great so far.
He added: “I played with Frank for a season at Man City and even then you could see that he had those leadership skills in his character.
“During my time at City, I often spoke with Pablo Zabaleta and we would say that English teams needed big players who have won a lot of things in their careers to become coaches here. So I think it’s fantastic that Lampard is now our head coach, it’s fantastic for him and also for Chelsea.”
Caballero also revealed Lampard discussed with the team how he wants them to play.
Caballero added: “He told us how he wants us to play, his ideas, how he wants us to train and how much work we must put in to be successful. He explained what it means to play for Chelsea and we are all excited to work under him.”
