Lampard very proud with the help rendered by Chelsea

Chelsea Manager Frank Lampard has defended comments made by the likes of Wayne Rooney, Gary Neville in Response to Claims regarding player salary reductions.

He also praised his club for their response to the Global pandemic by harboring the NHS Staffs in their Millennium Hotel and his players who he believes are already playing their part.

Lampard told Sky Sports News : "I was very proud to be manager of this club with the way Chelsea handled it. They were very quick to respond to help with the hotel.

"There's a lot more work they've been doing with the foundation, with link-ups, getting in touch with fans, with putting on tutorials from some of the academy coaches. There are a lot of people at Chelsea who have stood up with some good work.

"I think they needed some time and I think the politicians jumped the gun while things were being prepared. People behind the scenes knew that and it's unfortunate that picture got painted.


"Since then a lot of players and clubs have stood up in a good way generally. Knowing the players and how they think, that's been a very good reaction. And it's ongoing and it shouldn't stop.

"I think that reaction needs to continue. If there's a light at the end of this tunnel, if there are things we can all learn, it's how we give back and stick together."
