Frank Lampard says not following his personal superstitions could see the club's results take a turn for the worse
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has admitted that he believes not following his personal superstitions could see the club's results take a turn for the worse.
The 41-year-old has had a sensational start to life back at Stamford Bridge and is already regarded as one of the most exciting young managers in football, with Chelsea set to go into the international break as high as second if results go their way.
But Lampard, who was named as the Premier League's Manager of the Month, has admitted that he's subconsciously worried about results going against Chelsea if he stops certain routines like dog walking or cycling in the gym.
"I am superstitious. I was always as a player and I carry it into management," Lampard said, quoted by The Express. "I have routines, like walking the dog, or what time I leave, or the boots I wear in training.
"Before training, I will walk Minnie at a certain time, on a certain route, on certain days. I go out early, down to the coffee shop, get my coffee, walk around, pick up Minnie’s poo, put it in the bin, walk her home then go to training.
