Ahead of today’s Premier League clash against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium, Bournemouth winger Harry Wilson has thanked Chelsea boss Frank Lampard for having a massive impact on his career.
Wilson played under Lampard at Derby County last season.
“He was massive for my development and my career so far,” Wilson told Bournemouth official website.
“Before I went there, speaking to him on the phone felt like he was the manager who wanted me the most as I had a couple of other clubs who were interested.
“He’d watched my games and told me where he saw me fitting into his team and I knew from that moment that going to Derby was the right decision and throughout the season it became clear that I had decided well.
“I learned a lot from him, not just playing in my usual position because he played me in central midfield for a lot of games.
“That was new to me but he pulled me into his office and said he felt I was a player who could play there and he showed me a few videos, gave me a few tactical pointers and my game came on leaps and bounds under him. I definitely owe him a lot.”
