Lampard clarifies Chelsea players fitness level ahead of Madrid clash and apologizes to players; Here’s what he said.
The caretaker boss stated that his players lacked capacity and needed physical work to get up to standard.
The Blues have lost all their matches since Lampard took charge until the end of the season.
During a press conference, he stated on this matter: “That’s how you’ve taken it because I’m always big on personal responsibility in football as a player and as a group.
“So when I’m talking like that I’m not blaming anyone else from what I see now and what I see in the future, so it’s something we have to address now and address going forward because it’s a big part of the game and we do a lot of work and delve into the data and statistics on the output of what we put into games.
“It’s not a question of commitment of players but my job is to focus in on points we can get better at to compete at this level and I think it’s something that as a short-term thing we can improve on and that’s we are going to do.”
