Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta has backed Chelsea boss Frank Lampard’s youth policy while also revealing the senior players at the club are trying to help the youngsters in Chelsea’s training camp in Dublin.
Lampard kicked off his reign as Chelsea boss with a 1-1 draw against Bohemians in Dublin on Wednesday night.
Lampard picked two different XIs for each half, and a common theme throughout was the presence of youngsters.
Azpilicueta said, according to Standard Sport: “He is very keen to give opportunities to the younger players.
“All the senior players, we are happy and we are trying to help all of them.
“Frank knows the young players very well. His staff have been working with a lot of youngsters through the years.
“We have the best academy in England and, obviously, it is a chance for all of them to step up and to see them in the first team.”
