Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has been making the right decisions since his appointment as Chelsea boss on Thursday and his players have been impressed with his decisions so far.

Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has admitted he’s excited about Lampard’s decision to promote Joe Edwards to the first team backroom staff.

The promotion of Edwards will unite Loftus-Cheek with a coach he has played under since the age of nine.

Loftus-Cheek told Chelsea’s official website: “It’s exciting times for the club. I played with Jody a bit with the Under-21s [when Morris first returned to Chelsea at the end of his playing career] and they did so well last year at Derby.

“For them to combine their knowledge and experience with the youth coming through could be really interesting.

“I’ve been training with Joe since before I can remember really. He was my coach for a number of years in the Academy so it’s exciting that he’s moving up in the game and doing well.

“Everyone is progressing and if we keep that mentality to keep going forward then as a team we can achieve a lot.”
