Lampard proud to be at Chelsea for one year

Speaking in his Pre-Match conference ahead of the Watford game, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was asked about the whereabout of his new boys (Werner & Ziyech)

The Blues Boss confirmed that both the players haven’t arrived in the UK as the citizens of the UK are waiting for quarantine news from the prime minister.

He added that Werner is having his holiday and won’t be expected until late July while quarantine regulations is the reason keeping Ziyech from arriving.

 “They haven't arrived”  “As the whole country is waiting on quarantine news we're also waiting on quarantine news, and we want to make sure the players can travel, move around and work as we'll need them to.


“Timo Werner has only finished recently, so he's having a well-deserved break and will come back later on in July.


“Ziyech will come here earlier than that, but we need to wait on the quarantine news before we can be clearer on that.”


He was also asked about the potential exit of his full back Emerson Palmieri and he once again denied being involved in any transfer activity.


“I'm not aware of the talks, what I am doing is focusing on the team and the squad day to day.


“I don't have any real conversations about the transfer window, whether it's about who we might bring in or who might leave the club.


“Those are obviously questions we do have to answer come the end of the season when the window opens. But I certainly don't want to be swayed by rumour or gossip, and I'm not involved in it so we'll keep working.”


It has been One year since Frank Lampard has being at the helm of affairs at Chelsea and he spoke about the challenges he has faced in an eventful season.


 “It certainly has [been eventful]. And something I'm very proud to be doing, and to be offered the opportunity to do, one year ago.


“It feels like a long time ago but at the same time it's flown by. It's one of those, there's a lot that's happened and a lot of crazy circumstances for everybody. But the experience alone of being Chelsea manager has been a great one.


“There's a lot of work to do so I can think about it and have some good and some not so good memories in the year. But I'm much more focused on what the next years ahead look like.”
