Lampard ‘interested’ in transfer ban appeal saying ‘it can affect what we can do’

Frank Lampard is busy preparing his Chelsea team for the big Champions League clash against Ajax tomorrow night.

The Blues face the joint Group H league leaders in a match that will go along way to decide which team tops the group.

Both sides have 6 points so far and Chelsea will believe that they can once again show enough to get all three points from an Ajax side they beat 1-0 away from home just a couple of weeks back.

It will be another tough match for both teams who boast young and quick teams with the potential to do a lot of damage to the other.

But Lampard has been facing questions from the press and one in particular caught our attention. It was the subject of the transfer ban, and a date being set for Chelsea’s appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

The Blues boss seems to be pretty interested in getting the ban overturned in January, explaining that it will effect what they can do. To me, this points towards Lampard believing he can strengthen to squad to help them be more successful this season.

As reported by Football London, when asked about CAS, he said:

“I’m Very interested. But I have no comment right now, I don’t know enough of the legals to delve.

“It can effect what we can do, but it is a little down my list. We have Ajax and Palace to think about.

“We are on a good run. It is a nice feeling (that some fans don’t want ban overturned). We will always look to improve if we can, but I am very happy with what I’ve got.”
