It seems Valencia boss Albert Celades has been scouting last season’s games with the wrong club.

During his pre-match press conference ahead of Chelsea’s visit to the Mestalla, Valencia boss Celades claimed Chelsea boss Frank Lampard did a very good job at Coventry last season.

Lampard’s managerial debut was actually at Derby County and not Coventry.

According to Reuters journalist Richard Martin, Celades, 44, said: “He was a great player and then he did a very good job at Coventry.”

Despite his blunder on Lampard, Celades admitted the game against Chelsea will be difficult.

Celades added: “That season was a big opportunity to arrive to Chelsea, be at a big level in the Premier League and the Champions League.

“Chelsea is a big team, with big players and a big coach. Tomorrow will be a difficult game.

“Chelsea have very good players, not two or three, a lot of good players.

“They play with big intensity and I think at the moment they are one of the best in Europe.

“They are playing very well.

“Watching the game against Manchester City you can understand the things they can do… we need to be at our best to beat Chelsea.”
