Frank Lampard : His importance to the current squad.
|Frank Lampard : His importance to the current squad.|
A lot of talk involving Frank Lampard has been going on recently, about how Frank Lampard does not fit in as a regular for Chelsea, after being dropped to the bench for 3 consecutive Premier League games. We have seen that Lampard does not fit in to the new dynamic Chelsea first team. Hence, he probably won’t play as many games as he used to anymore, and this rises a new question. Is Frank Lampard no longer important to the club?
Frank Lampard is still a very valuable player for Chelsea for what he has to offer off the field, or on the fields at Cobham. A veteran like Lampard brings a lot of experience and helps the younger players a lot by learning and training alongside such a maestro. His presence on the field on big days helps a lot, too. During big games, Lampard’s experience, and his knowledge can help the team to break a big team down and win the game. Di Matteo has recently emphasized that Frank Lampard is still important to the club, and this is probably the reason. A massive experience, and leadership skills, can sometimes be the difference between two sides on a big day.
However, it remains to be seen what transpires. Will the Chelsea legend leave the club at the end of the season, due to a generational shift which saw Didier Drogba leave, this summer?
Should Super Frank see out his career at the Bridge, or is it time to move on for the stalwart?
