Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic finally scored for the Blues in the 2-2 draw against Valencia on Wednesday night.
Kovacic had played 122 games without scoring a goal. He scored his last goal while at Real Madrid in a 3-0 win over Real Sociedad on January 29, 2017.
After the game against Valencia, Kovacic took to Twitter to share his thoughts on his first Chelsea goal.
He said: “And I almost gave up on the ‘goal thing’.
“Happy to score and help the team win a valuable point.”
Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed he told Kovacic to add goals to his game before the midfielder’s goal against Valencia.
“We’ve had a lot of jokes between me and him and the whole squad and him because he’s a player of such quality that should score more goals,” Lampard said in his post-match press conference.
“It’s a project for me, for him and the whole staff to get him more goals and he could have scored two today.
“I’m delighted for him and I hope that’s the start of something new.”
