Former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has hailed Reece James for sending him the most incredible message after his Chelsea sacking.
Lampard told Jamie Redknapp in an interview: “The minute the news came out, there were 10 photographers plotted up over the road from where we live, so it wasn’t the easiest to leave the house. But I got incredible messages from some of the biggest names in football and I got emotional messages from some of the players.
“I remember reading Reece James’s one. Reece isn’t a man of many words but he wrote the most incredible message. I live near the stadium. For the first week I kept my head down, staying home, spending time with the family.
“But the minute I got out, there were cabbies and Chelsea fans in the streets who gave me a real lift because of how they were with me.”
