Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has told the Chelsea players not getting enough games to work hard on the training pitch and show support to their teammates who are out playing.

According to the Blues boss he doesn’t expect players who aren’t getting game time to be happy but he wants them to work hard. The Chelsea manager also admitted that he knew some players will talk about him behind his back, as he labelled that as a negative side of player power.

“The players that are wanting to play, some of them will use that for really positivity but some not so much,” Lampard told the media.

“Maybe some will speak behind backs because that’s how life is, I can’t be concerned with that. All I can say is the players here I feel have a real desire to get out of this mini run of bad results and I can see that in them.

“If there are players that don’t have those concerns to get out of it then they have decisions to make, and if there’s opportunities that players leave it will have to be right for them, for myself and for the club and then that can happen.

“But if not we keep fighting and moving on because they want to play and contribute and I want to tap into the positive side of that.
