“He knows the club like n’obody else and it’s important to give c’ontinuity to things. Like anyone, Lampard is going to need time. Chelsea have invested a lot of money but now need to adapt to an idea.”
Hiddink continued, defending Lampard’s first spell in ch’arge in west London. “It was perhaps too soon to take on such a big responsibility,” he said.
“He had just st’arted his coaching career and now he’s had more experience, he’s more and better prepared. Let him work! I know him and I t’hink he is the right person.”
Sanchez allowed to leave B’righton
Chelsea have received a boost in their pursuit of Brighton goalkeeper Robert Sanchez. The Blues are s’aid to be in for a new goalkeeper this summer and have been linked with a number of individuals.
talkSPORT have s’uggested that Sanchez will be allowed to leave Brighton at the end of the season. The goalkeeper first joined the Seagulls in 2013 and has become one of the best-pe’rforming shot-stoppers in the Premier League.
The r’eport claims that Br’ighton will not stand in his way of first-team football at the end of the season. However, it remains to be seen whether the player himself wo’uld welcome a move to Stamford Bridge with his current employees on course to q’ualify for European football.
