Chelsea’s assistant manager Jody Morris has heaped praises on Frank Lampard for his work ethics.

The Blues boss was known to be a hardworking player during his playing days, and Morris who knew Lampard right from his Chelsea days, has revealed that the gaffer has taken that same work ethic to his managerial career.

Morris even added that the work commitment of Lampard, has rubbed off on the rest of the team.

“He’s our gaffer,” Morris said in Chelsea’s match programme ahead of Southampton clash.

“He’s been there and done it, playing up to 60 games in a season, so as much as we would have liked a longer pre-season, it is something he was renowned for – just playing relentlessly, going in and getting the job done.

“He certainly works like that and when you have that coming from the top, it filters down to the rest of the staff, throughout the building. We certainly take our lead from him and there’s not a harder worker amongst the staff.”
