It is no secret that Frank Lampard and Villas-Boas do not read from the same page. In fact, only last week, the veteran Chelsea midfielder make it clear that their were problems between them.
“I think, from the outside, you can probably see that it’s not been ideal but the important thing is not to focus on individual relationships too much. It can only be negative and people do like to play on negatives.”
Lampard who scored in Saturday’s 3-0 home win over Bolton became the first player to reach double digit goals in nine consecutive seasons in the Premier League.
The 33 year old went on to say that he did not mind sitting on the bench as long as Chelsea did win.
“I’ve been here a long time, I’m 33, I’m realistic,”
“It doesn’t mean I want to play every game but, if I sit on the bench, I want to see Chelsea win.” Lampard said.
Meanwhile, AVB has stated that he would like Lampard to stay with the club beyond this season. I have to admit, Villas-Boas, could just be the right person for the Chelsea.
As much as people do not want to admit it, The Chelsea of today cannot be compared to the Chelsea of 2004 and the sooner the team transitions to a more younger and youthful squad, the better.
It’s time Drogba, Lampard, Terry and Cech made way for a generation of new players. It’s this transition that is responsible for the team’s embarrassing performances in their recent matches.
When asked whether Lampard will stay with the squad, this is what he had to say:
“I hope so. It does not depend on me. It depends on three parts – I want him, the person wants to stay and the club wants him.
What do you think, should Chelsea give AVB another season to prove himself or should they get rid of him asap?
