Speaking to ESPN Chelsea legend Frank Lampard analysed the situation of the Blues, claiming that the squad need a revamp.
Lampard is sure Chelsea will come back to be a great team and he studied them when he watched some games at the stadium in the past month:
“From seeing some of the games I saw when I was back in England over the Christmas period, I think they need a new injection around the team.
“And it’s strange because a year ago, you’re thinking, ‘They’ve got a great squad and if they add to it they can really go.’ Now you’re thinking, ‘They need to revamp, to change some players.’ I think that will happen in the summer. I think there will be three or four or five players and positions in the team that change around.
“We’re not used to it [seeing Chelsea in 14th spot of the table]. I was really fortunate to be part of a really good era. A bad season was like second, third, or fourth at the most, so I think it’s shocking.”
Lampard also expressed his opinion on Mourinho’s sacking:
“I think it was a difficult call. It’s not easy to say whether it was the right or wrong solution until you look back and how it goes in the future, the next two or three years. Nobody was happy at Chelsea. The players wouldn’t have been happy with its position. Jose Mourinho himself wouldn’t have been.
“Sometimes that means a change. Chelsea are very used to change, but what they’ve always had is results, so I’d like to see them get back to the top half of the table very soon.”
“I think the club will come back. They’re a huge club and there’s obviously been issues there. You see that when they fire the manager who won the league six months before. I know a lot of people at the club. They will come back.”
