Frank Lampard’s Chelsea assistant Jody Morris has admitted that Chelsea youngster Billy Gilmour should’ve played more while Lampard was Chelsea boss.
The Scotland international is currently out on a season-long loan with Norwich City but is struggling to get minutes at the moment.
Gilmour made his Chelsea debut when Lampard was in charge. The 20 year old midfielder has made 22 senior appearances for Chelsea to date, with 17 coming during Lampard’s era.
“When I look back, if anything, when Frank and I were in charge he should’ve played more,” Morris told The Times.
“We’d walk off the training pitch and Frank would say: ‘Billy, best player again’. Whether it was technical, tactical, going in against experienced lads, Frank got more and more impressed. When we started giving him minutes, we could see it was where he belonged.”
