Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has expressed regret at the language he used during a touchline incident at Anfield on Wednesday night.
The incident happened in the first half when Mateo Kovacic was penalised for a foul on Sadio Mane, even though the Blues midfielder appeared to win the ball. Liverpool scored from the resultant free-kick.
While Lampard regrets the language used, he insists he doesn’t regret showing passion to back his players.
“I’ve seen the video and I was obviously there,” Lampard said.
“In terms of the language I used, I do regret that because I know these things get replayed a lot on social media.
“I have two young daughters who are on social media so I regret that but I don’t regret having passion to defend my team. I could maybe have handled it slightly differently to keep that language in.”
