The club’s all-time top scorer displaced Maurizio Sarri this summer, and under him, the Blues have done relatively well so far. They were a bit shaky at the beginning but are playing pretty well now. Chelsea are currently fourth in the Premier League while being close to qualifying for the knockout steps of the Champions League.
Kepa heaped praise on Lampard, saying that he’s fortunate to have the 41-year-old as his manager. As quoted by Sky Sports, the Spanish international said: “He is a coach that was, and he is a legend in the club. He was a significant player during his football career.
Now he is in his second year as a coach, but he is sharing all his experience. Everything he knows about football, and everything he has lived, gave to Chelsea, and the titles he won with them like the Champions League, the Premier League and all the possible trophies. I am fortunate to have him as a coach.”
Not many expected much from Lampard when he returned to Stamford Bridge as Chelsea lost Eden Hazard and weren’t able to sign new players due to a transfer embargo. However, the 41-year-old has so far done a pretty good job at the club, giving chances to prospects who have been in fine form.
Given how Chelsea are doing so far, they have a perfect chance of finishing in the top four of the Premier League. The Blues next play Crystal Palace on Saturday and could transfer to second in the league table provided Leicester City are unable to beat Arsenal and Manchester City lose to Liverpool.
