In a recent revelation, Frank Lampard, the interim manager of Chelsea, has expressed his concerns about the team’s training regime. Lampard has indicated that the current level of training is not up to the mark to secure consistent victories in the Premier League.

The Blues suffered a crushing 4-1 defeat against Manchester United, which led to United securing their position in the Champions League. This loss marks Lampard’s eighth defeat in his last ten matches as Chelsea’s interim manager. Lampard candidly admitted that his team’s training performance has been lacking.

Lampard stated, “The only way to answer that is to answer with your performance and it starts with how you work and how you train and how you prepare and if I’m honest collectively that’s been the thing that was quite glaringly short.”

He further explained that there are several reasons behind this issue, including the size of the squad, which has been a valid concern throughout the season. However, he emphasized the importance of a united and motivated training group, which he believes is currently missing from the team.

Despite the recent disappointments, the 44-year-old manager appeared calm and hopeful for the future. He drew attention to the achievements of Erik ten Hag, Manchester United’s manager, as a potential model for Chelsea’s development. Lampard stressed the importance of setting standards and fundamentals, which he believes were key to United’s positive upturn.

Lampard concluded, “I think those things are probably where the club had a positive upturn and then sometimes the players and a good structure will do the rest for you.”

The Chelsea manager’s candid admission about the team’s training issues provides a glimpse into the challenges the club is currently facing. It remains to be seen how Lampard and his team will address these issues and turn their fortunes around in the coming matches.
