The Premier League has been suspended since March 9 due to the coronavirus pandemic that has halted football activities since then.

The players have been on lockdown since then, and training only resumed on Tuesday. But for Chelsea manager Frank Lampard, it hasn’t been a period of holiday, the Blues boss has revealed that he has been spending time with his family and exercising as well.

Lampard also revealed that he has been spending the bulk of his time watching videos and analysing games.

“At the moment I’m living at home in Chelsea,” Lampard said according to the official Chelsea website. “I wake up and generally take my dog out to get some exercise. I spend some time with the family, learning a few new things! Now I can cook some more dishes at home and all of those sorts of things.

“I like to exercise regularly, so I tend to try and get out and go for a run, or get on the bike and do things, which is always good for me mentally.”

Lampard went on to reveal that he has been spending time watching videos of games played this season and making his analysis from those games.

“And then a lot of work. At the moment I spend quite a lot of time on the computer at home contacting people, whether it be the players, or staff at Chelsea, planning training sessions for the future. I’m always trying to keep my mind engaged. I’m certainly occupying my time well.

“I have watched a lot of games back from this season, focusing on particular parts of the team that I always want to improve. Sometimes when you have game after game you can’t reflect, you’re always looking forward, but I’ve had time to do that.

“We have got a really good analyst team and we can put together some videos and ideas for the future. That helps me with my planning, how we are going to train, how it’s going to look, and use the time as well as I can to make us better when we come back to where we’re playing.”
