Chelsea’s young and veteran players have reacted to Frank Lampard being sacked
Lampard had been given so much money to spend in the transfer window has not signed anyone due to the transfer ban on them. He resorted to using the academy boys to do the job.
He did bring in the likes of Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Kai Harvetz, Edouard Mendy amongst others.
Having spent so much, and with appalling results that see them 9th on the league log trailing leaders Manchester United by 11 points, the Chelsea record goalscorer with 211 goals was always going to be asked to stay away from the management duties.
So we sought to look out for the reactions of the Chelsea stars after Lampard’s sacking by Chelsea was confirmed.
Club captain, Cesar Azpilicueta, who played with Lampard had this to say;
“I have shared many memories with you since 2012, first as a team-mate and then as a manager. I’ve learned so much from you. I wish you all the best for the future.”
Billy Gilmour, the Scottish youngster who had some good games under Lampard’s management thanked him for believing in him.
“Thank you for giving me an opportunity and for your faith and trust in me. It’s been an honor to learn from you,” he wrote on Twitter.
England International, Ben Chilwell one of Lampard’s signees from Leicester City was full of praise for him for having faith in him and bringing him to the club.
“You believed in me and showed faith to bring me to the club I now love. I will always be grateful. Thank you gaffer,” Chilwell wrote on Twitter.
