Frank Lampard’s former Chelsea teammates Didier Drogba and John Terry showed their supports to the departed Blues boss upon his sacking.
Lampard was axed by the club, but the Blues legend still took out time to appreciate the club, fans and owner despite his sacking.
It was a class move by the legend, and the words from Drogba said: “Class is permanent, forever a legend.”
Indeed it was a class move by Lampard, and the departed boss also took out time to send a message to the new boss Thomas Tuchel, proving just how much love he has for the club as well as his class.
Lampard sent him a message of good luck — and an invitation to meet up in the future for a chat.
“I have the biggest respect for Frank and his legacy here at Chelsea,” he said. “As a player he was a joy to watch and he embodied everything Chelsea was about: intensity, devotion, a winning mentality.
“He is an absolute icon. Me being manager here has nothing to do with Frank’s situation. This is not my fault.
“The decision was made and I was handed an opportunity. I hope there is no fan backlash. That would be hard on the team. We need our fans, like any team.”
