Following Chelsea’s 3-0 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard sent a message to the Chelsea board, insisting the defeat has proven Chelsea need to add quality to the squad.
When asked if the defeat has proven Chelsea needs to add quality players to the squad, Lampard replied: “I wouldn’t say I’ve been proven right on anything but in the bigger picture I think today we just saw there was a lot of quality in their team. There’s a build towards that.
“Players like Lewandowski have been there for a long. Muller I played against in 2012 in the Champions League. And Boateng. And Neuer. Alaba’s been there a long time.
“There’s a lot to their team we have to respect. But to focus on us there’s no point on looking back on anything else other than the fact of being real about where we are.
“We’re now fighting to come in the top four this year because we want to then improve in the summer.
“We also have to go to Munich and play with a lot of pride in a few weeks, to see what we can do there. Today was just a clear show that there’s a lot of work to be done and I felt that when I took the job. I felt that all the way through and I felt that today.
“I’ll keep working and we all need to.”
