Lampard to remind Chelsea players of responsibilities over Christmas

C

helsea boss Frank Lampard will remind his squad about their responsibilities ahead of the busy Christmas period.

The Christmas period is likely to draw an even greater spotlight on players, with matches taking place during an exceptionally tight schedule.

And Lampard has explained he will remind his squad about their position as role models when it comes to obeying the rules during the festive period.

“I will possibly have those conversations,” said Lampard. “I better read up on the tier system.

“I know the basics and the players should do by now, and I will reiterate to them their responsibilities. I think the Christmas party thing of yesteryear is pretty much mellowed now anyway.

“Regardless players are so well followed on social media, etc, that some of the parties I might have been involved in back in the day certainly aren’t happening in the modern day.

“But on a serious note, we’ve had new signings this year and a new fresh squad in a way, and we have missed the opportunity to go out and have dinner together more often.

“It has been one of the tough parts of Covid, but it is the same for everybody. The responsibilities of players are bigger as role models to the outside, for their professional careers, to do the right thing.

“Particular when they are playing so frequently over Christmas, they have to live differently to the rest of the public potentially and focus. That is hopefully a constant reminder, but I will have those conversations.”
