Frank Lampard confirms work on more summer recruitment has already started

If the Chelsea players wanted to show any sort of desire to stay at the club and become part of a special movement under Frank Lampard, they failed to show it once again last night.

It seems that no player is safe, with many linked to potential departures as Lampard looks to overhaul his squad during the next six weeks in the transfer window.

If players were fighting for their futures against Bayern Munich last night, it was hard to see it.

The Blues were gunned down 4-1 by a much better Bayern side, and they ended up losing the tie 7-1 on aggregate.

The defence was shot once again, and the players lacked that fight and spirit that Lampard asked to see before the game.

But speaking after the game, Lampard has confirmed that he and the Chelsea board are looking at their recruitment plans for this summer and work is already in progress for new signings.

As reported by The Daily Mail, Lampard said:

“We’ll look at that [recruitment], because that’s our job, we’re very joined up on that already.

“From having a transfer ban (last summer) you feel we’ve missed where other clubs have spent and improved, and recruitment is a huge part of this game.

“Nights like this in a footballing sense, show me a lot, tell me a lot.

“So it’s a conversation now, the season is ended, it’s a very quick turnaround, so now is the time to see where we can improve, what areas we can improve on.”
