Chelsea defender David Luiz has praised new Chelsea boss Frank Lampard for trying to bring intensity to the team’s play.
Luiz said, according to Sky Sports: “I think the most important thing is about intensity now in modern football. Everyone can see the last Champions League final was about two teams that can play with high intensity.
“Frank loves this club and has the identity of this club. All the staff are working with love and passion and they want to give us the best things to perform well inside the pitch.”
Meanwhile, Chelsea winger Pedro has spoken of the high intensity training that the players have been partaking in since Frank Lampard’s appointment as head coach.
“We’ve been training really hard with Frank this week,” Pedro said.
“It’s very hard work, high intensity. We’re pressing a lot without the ball, when we’ve got the ball we have to move it quickly, and in transition (we have to be) very good.
“It’s very good to work under Frank. He’s a legend at this club. He’s a very good coach with very good ideas but it’s only five days working with him and for the future we have to prepare very well this month.”
