“What I find extraordinary about him [Lampard] is how ruthless he can be when necessary,”
“Yesterday he pulled the plug on Marcos Alonso at left-back and played [Cesar] Azplicueta, switched him from the right to the left side. He dropped Tammy Abraham and brought in Olivier Giroud and he dropped Antonio Rudiger.”
The Former Blues Striker also went on to compare Lampard’s ruthless approach to Jose Mourinho was he was at the helm of affairs in West London.
“Sometimes you have to make call as a manager but Frank does it incredibly quickly,”
“There isn’t any leeway with him. If he feels something needs to be changed he does it and I do wonder if that comes from his early days with Jose [Mourinho].
“He did it regularly at Chelsea – when someone wasn’t pulling their weight he took the out the team immediately.”
