Chelsea skipper Cesar Azpilicueta has offered some insight into the way Frank Lampard wants his squad to play this coming season.
While it is unclear whether Azpilicueta will stay on as club captain under Lampard’s reign, there can be no doubting that he will remain an influential member of the dressing room regardless.
Azpilicueta played alongside Lampard, as well as John Terry, Petr Cech and Ashley Cole. He will have learnt from all of the aforementioned the importance of stepping up to the mark at Chelsea.
Azpi continually conducted his media duties last term, which is a responsibility often given to the more senior players in the squad. He looks set to continue chatting to the press throughout this summer.
The Spaniard is quoted by the Daily Mail revealing what new head coach Lampard has told the squad about the way he wants to see them play this coming season:
“He wants us to play with high intensity and we want to be dominant in games, the manager has explained how he wants us to play and we are all enjoying the camp so far.”
Chelsea ‘dominated’ games under Maurizio Sarri but were often unable to do anything with the vast amount of possession we had. Let’s hope it won’t be the same under Lamps.
