Lampard: “I was always confident they will stay”

Frank Lampard today in his Pre-match conference said he always felt confident that Willian and Pedro will extent their contract on till the end of this current domestic season.

The two winger’s contract was set to expire on June 30 but they have now signed a contract extension to keep them till the end of the season. 

Speaking at his Pre-match conference ahead the game at home to City tomorrow, he said: "We are still talking with the players, and Willian in particular, we are talking with him," 

"It was hard for me to comment too much because it was announced yesterday. But I was always felt confident that they would remain, they've been fantastic professionals for the club, and servants in all senses.


"And when you have that level of professionalism within you, I think it's a sign that they wanted to stay and see out the season at least.


"So we'll carry on talking and see. But I think everybody's focus now is on these next games, the individuals themselves and us as a club."


“I'm pleased, negotiations were relatively easy, because both sides wanted the same thing," 


"The two players wanted to make sure they could see the season out with us.


“At this point we need them in the squad, they are both important players for us, so I'm happy.”
