Lampard “regrets” using foul language

Frank Lampard has defended the passion he showed on the touchline during Chelsea’s 5-3 loss to Liverpool.

The Blues boss admitted he could have chosen his choice of words carefully and he does regret that but reiterates he could happen to any manager or player.

“To be honest, I have seen the video and I was there. In terms of the language I used, I do regret that.

“These things get played a lot on social media. I have two young daughters on social media, but in terms of my passion to defend my team, then no [regrets].”

The 42-year old further explained why he lost his cool on the touchline.

“There were a lot of things that were ongoing and on the bench ... I’ve got no problem with Jurgen Klopp, he’s managed this team and it’s fantastic.

“Some of the bench, it’s a fine line between when you are winning – and they’ve won the league, fair play to Liverpool Football Club – but also don’t get too arrogant with it.”

Meanwhile Lampard said he has no problem with Jurgen Klopp and wouldn’t mind having a toast with him.

 “I would have had a beer with Jurgen Klopp to toast their success.

“There were things I didn’t like from their bench, not Jurgen Klopp, but their bench. Emotions run high in this game.”

SkySports Pundit Jamie Carragher believes Chelsea need a chance in the Goalkeeping department if they want to challenge for the title and Lampard was asked about his comment 

“Don't want to comment on other people's comments about players. That's their opinion.

“I have to work behind the scenes. My only thought now is how we approach two games domestically and then Bayern. That goes for every player, not just Kepa.”
