Willy Caballero is among a few Chelsea players who have shared a dressing room with Frank Lampard as teammates.

In the current Chelsea team, only Willian and Cesar Azpilicueta remain from Frank Lampard’s teammates at the club, while Caballero was his teammate while at Manchester City for just the 2014/15 season.

The 38-year-old Argentine has now revealed how it was for him to have his former teammate now as his boss.

“I’ve played with him, but also a few players here have played with him, so I’m not the only one,” Caballero told the official Chelsea website. “I had a good experience with him at City and we have good memories.

“It was funny to start the season and see him as a coach, then to listen to him now, giving us orders and taking training. On the second day, I realised that now he’s my boss – I needed a few hours to adjust!

“First of all, you have to respect more now. I think everything that you live as a player just stays there in the changing room and in your memory and now it’s another turn of the page and a chapter of the book, for him and for me too.

“I knew him as a player and he’s showing us in the way he’s believing and the way we have to train and play. It’s fantastic and it’s good to see that.”
