Lampard on Chelsea’s task for the new season: “We don’t want to limit ourselves to fighting for the top 4»

Chelsea Manager Frank Lampard spoke after the second leg of the 1/8 final of the Champions League with Bayern Munich (1: 4) and shared his expectations for next season.

“Playing against an opponent of this level is a test to the limit and an incredible experience for Rhys [James], Callum [Hudson-Odoi], Tammy [Abraham] and Mason [Mount]. Today I saw that our youth demonstrated their level, remained in the game until the end and did not give up until the final whistle.

Kante has only played half of the games this season and we missed him a lot, and today, especially in the second half, he showed why. Of course, the final result cannot please us. We may not have had a chance to win, but we went out on the field with the right attitude and gave everything we had.

I will never be able to accept defeats calmly, but if you compare these two teams, we need time to get to this level. This cannot be achieved in one day. Now the players are going on a well-deserved rest, but we are looking forward to the start of the new season, in which we will do everything to achieve more.

We know what level we are at now, and next season we don’t want to limit ourselves to just fighting for the top four. We must accept our initial level, work hard and understand that everything takes time. Now I see a great set of players who have done a lot this year and are ready to do even more next year,” Lampard said.

Frank Lampard: Chelsea will return. It’s hard to talk after a 1-4 defeat»

Chelsea Manager Frank Lampard summed up the results of the second leg of the 1/8 final of the Champions League with Bayern (1: 4).

On the sum of two games, the Londoners lost 1: 7 and left the tournament.

“For us to face Bayern and their experience in the Champions League is a good training session. Many of our players spend their debut seasons. I see the direction I want us to go. I know we’ll be back.

They have performed well. It is difficult to speak after the 1-4 defeat, it is unpleasant, but we still got back into the game, conceding two quick goals.

Comparing our performances in the Champions League with theirs, I saw a lot of good things in the team, but also some bad things to slip through this season. We had some mistakes, thanks to which the opponent scored. At this level, it will kill you.

The work continues. This is not the norm for Chelsea. We almost lost the best player in the League in the person of Eden hazard. People don’t usually approve of Chelsea’s fourth place, we want more, but it feels like we have achieved something with the team.

Now it’s time to think about what we can improve, ” Lampard said.

Today we have nine players left with injuries, so I have some doubts before Lyon. We will see who recovers, ” football Italia quotes Sarri as saying.

We need to approach the upcoming meeting very carefully. We will start with a score of 0: 1. in the current conditions, it will be very difficult to win back.

I am surprised that Lyon looked very good physically in the match against Paris Saint-Germain. They didn’t look like a team that hadn’t played for a long time.

We need to reboot mentally. Physical form will be restored in a couple of days. We will start on Monday, ” Sarri’s Goal quotes him as saying.

We did some good pressing, and tired out the opponent, they are unable to play at this pace until the end of the match. We didn’t want to get caught in a counterattack, as they are moving very fast.

The team is in a great mood. We are focused and motivated. We have an extremely difficult but very exciting match against Tottenham ahead of us, so we have to be ready.

The coach [Conte] was in constant contact with Hakimi, talking to him about the club project, so we decided to move to inter.

There were a lot of chances, we could have played more coolly, but Ospina made some good saves and decided the outcome of the match. The goal we conceded was disappointing, we made a stupid mistake. During the Napoli goal, there was a rebound and we fell apart. We weren’t focused enough in that moment and we paid the price. This will be a lesson to us, because such details are crucial.

I want to see a similar inter game in the next matches. We had about 60% of possession, a lot more shots on goal. Napoli are in the final, we take our hats off to them, but we need to evaluate not only the result, but also the game. I am very happy with the team and I feel that we deserve to reach the final. The players are upset that they did not reach the final,” Conte was quoted as saying by Football Italia.

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher spoke out after the draw in the Merseyside Derby (0: 0) in the 30th round of the Premier League.

He is a great player who scores goals, is very good in the air and is very fast. It depends on him how far he can go.I can’t say that Havertz will become the best German football player of all time, but he is endowed with talent, and there are no limits. It shows signs of Zidane.

The situation with the coronavirus is so strange and complex That havertz’s departure from us is still possible.

There are some amazing examples of box-to-box. Zinedine Zidane, Patrick Vieira, Roy Keane were exceptionally good in their breakthroughs.

It’s important for me to keep watching these cuts, I make the guys send them to me as often as possible to analyze them,” Mctominay said.
