Frank Lampard if you recalled gave way for Ruidiger to leave Chelsea so why come back crying now that he has joined a better team?
Lampard have opened up about Ruidiger joining Real Madrid and he said;
Lampard said: “Pressure on both teams due to the size of both clubs. Are Real Madrid favourites? Yes. There’s no better carrot in football and trying to prove people wrong. That’s a nice challenge. Football is pressure and if you can’t handle it, you’re not a big club or big player.
“I think Toni Rudiger has done fantastically well. When I last saw him as Everton manager, I wished him well as the Madrid mvoe was going to happen. Antonio Rudiger played a lot for me but our story ended and his continued. Good luck to him and good luck to any player that works as hard as Toni to get to Chelsea and Real Madrid.
“I’ve got a huge respect for the team, my biggest respect for the team and the success, it’s for the players with longevity. Benzema, Modric, Kroos. To appreciate what it takes and to be the leaders of the group – huge admirationo for them
“We have to work against it and be clear about those threats and the areas of the pitch that are repetitive. The players have to be aware of it and deal with it.”
