Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed the one thing he will always ask his Chelsea players for when they are on the pitch.
“On the pitch I will ask for one thing and that’s absolutely buying into how I want to do it,” Lampard said, according to Chelsea’s official website.
“I already sensed the size of the club and differences off the pitch, dealing with players with 70 caps and so many titles. No player is the same, but the basics are the same. And I haven’t changed too much in my basic approach.”
Lampard also admitted it feels good to be back at Chelsea.
Lampard added: “It felt good to be back. It was certainly a benefit to know the building so well and know so many faces in the building. That made it not so much a first day of school feeling.
“That corridor towards the manager’s office is somewhere you didn’t venture much – as a player I tried to be low maintenance on those terms. I suppose now it’s where I will be!
“It does feel different, but in the short period I have been in charge it changes very quickly. You become accustomed to it and that’s important for me to do that, and it’s important for the players to feel that is the case. I didn’t want too many grey areas. I know some of the players and the relationship with them is so good it’s been no issue. I’m talking about Azpi, David Luiz, Willian’s not here yet.”
