Great to have Petr training with us - Frank Lampard

Great to have Petr training with us - Frank Lampard

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is happy to have former teammate Petr Cech training with the Chelsea squad.

With the fight for the Number one spot and Kepa recent run of poor outing, Chelsea legend Petr Cech has decided to train with the goalkeepers to offer experience and help the team in a way he can.

Actually working as Chelsea's technical advisor, Petr Cech has also helped in bringing Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy to the club and will to work closing with the Chelsea goalkeeping team in deciding who will be Chelsea's number one going forward. Frank Lampard is obviously grateful for the sacrifice Cech is putting in for the team and believes his experience will help the team a lot.

“Petr came to me and talked about it before he started training at first,” Frank Lampard said.

“We were sort of suffering with the squad and numbers [being so high] and now Petr is training very regularly with the group. That can change at any time.

“It’s not something I have a problem within any way and that communication is always really good. It’s something I like. We are a tight-knit family here at Chelsea. It’s important that we’ve promoted that a lot.

“That was one of the things when I came back to the club. It's not like I’m going to put my boots on and take part every day, but what we’re trying to do is make sure that the group is together.

“Petr has his job but he’s also at times helping with the goalkeepers. Why would you not tap into having the best goalkeeper in the world, which he was for a long time, to pass on that knowledge?

“With Petr, he had so much to give on that side of things. His daily job here is to be a technical advisor and he has been a great help to me on that front. That’s been brilliant for me being back at the club to have that.

“Having Petr train with the goalkeepers and bring his experience is a great thing. He still has great quality as he retired pretty young. He’s training and keeping fit, which I think is healthy for him and the goalkeepers in the squad.”
