Frank Lampard has been very diplomatic so far, but after last night’s game he’s finally started unleashing some home truths on his players.
Before going on to criticise training standards in the press conference, he said to the TV cameras that there were some players to “need to realise who they are” who have fallen below the collective standards required of Chelsea players.
What we’re seeing on the pitch is clearly a product of that, and it’s a stark warning from a player who knows exactly the hard work it takes to get to the very top.
You can see see him speaking in the revealing clip embedded here:
🗣️ “Since I’ve been in I’ve understood quickly that some of the collective standards, and it’s for the individuals amongst that to realise who they are – It’s a bad year for the club. It needs a reboot.”
