Chelsea manager Frank Lampard must have ruffled some feathers in the Chelsea team with his line-up.
The Blues boss has dropped some experienced players to the bench at times, with Jorginho having been the most hit, as he’s yet to start a game since the restart. Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has also been dropped to the bench for the last two games.
Lampard has admitted that some of his players are unhappy, as he admitted that he always has some tough decisions to make.
“A good professional will be unhappy that they’re not playing but will deal with it in the right way, which he has done,’ said Lampard of the 28-year-old. ‘In my job, you have to understand that every individual is different and I try to deal with them as I feel our relationship is individually.
“I can see sometimes in a player’s face that they’ve got the hump but that’s the nature of my job. There are 11 places for a squad of 20-odd players so I can’t keep everybody happy all the time. I don’t mind an unhappy face.
“I have to accept in my job that I see that but at the same time we want professionalism and players to act the right way. Jorginho has absolutely done that so for that I’m delighted with him and it says a lot about him. Of course, he’s a top-class player – there’s no doubt about that.”
