Chelsea contented themselves with the role of spectators during Manchester City’s celebrations of winning the English Premier League title. Rather, its players stood in a corridor of honor to greet the heroes before the start of their match, but interim coach Frank Lampard believes that his team can learn a lot from this situation.
A day after clinching the title, City beat Chelsea 1-0 with a starting line-up on Sunday and celebrated the title at the Etihad Stadium, while Chelsea lamented their condition after dropping to mid-table.
Lampard said: City did not win three consecutive league titles by chance or without trouble, but rather worked hard and put in a lot of effort. Pep Guardiola changed the team to continue moving forward. Everyone is involved in his system to reach this level and achieve titles. This is the result of hard work.
And I follow: The players must understand that everyone bears responsibility. If you want to be like Erling Haaland, Kevin De Bruyne and others, you must make the effort that these people make. This is a great example for Chelsea players. You need diligence and this.
Lampard, 44, who won the league three times in 11 titles with Chelsea when he was a distinguished midfielder and is the club’s all-time top scorer, was appointed as temporary coach last April after the dismissal of Graham Potter, but he was unable to revive the London team and confirmed that he would not continue in his position. , saying a new coach will come and will certainly bring his own methods.
And about Chelsea’s ability to restore its glories, Lampard acknowledged the difficulty of predicting the club’s future, and said: This is in the hands of the players, and for the club it will depend on its direction and the new coach. The Premier League is getting more difficult and we felt that this year.
He concluded: We need to improve a lot of things to reach the status of Manchester City, we have many young talents and we may lack stability in the squad and some balance, and every player must strive to see if they can return the club to the desired position.
