Frank Lampard admits he is really worried about Chelsea flaws ahead of Real Madrid UCL second leg; what he said.
It is not going to be an easy match for Chelsea this week and it is even getting worse as their form keeps getting worse and worse.
Chelsea have been terrible all season, and Lampard has yet been able to change that. But one of the worrying admissions that Lampard has made about his players ahead of the Champions League clash this week is that they are not physically fit enough.
“At the minute, it has been mostly conversations and meetings than training pitch stuff,” Lampard said when asked about his training so far. “Training pitch stuff was all pretty walkthrough and low level because of the [tiredness] in the legs.
“It is more about speaking to the players individually. When we do get the chance to work, I think the team needs some physical work. I think that’s important for us because at this level you have to be right on the limit and we are not on the limit right now.
“I think that can be a capacity thing with the players for whatever reason. It doesn’t matter how we got there but it needs to be addressed now.”
Of course players get fatigued, it’s a long season with many games, but that is the same for all the top clubs in Europe, so why are Chelsea’s players not fit enough?
