Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been advised to take smart decisions when it comes to signing new players in the upcoming January transfer window.
Lampard shouldn’t spoil the reputation he has built for himself at Stamford Bridge, says Mario Melchiot. Melchiot recommends that Lampard must take very careful decisions this January, otherwise it could lead to his tenure being reduce or worse – sacked.
“If you look at those young players and the way they’ve developed…,” Melchiot told.
“If you look at Tammy Abraham, at the beginning of the season there was a discussion about who would lead the line, and he managed to get himself a number of goals that stopped the discussions almost straight away between him and Olivier Giroud.
“Mason Mount is one of those players where when you watch him you forget how young he is, and one of the biggest surprises for me was Christian Pulisic.
“He came in for a lot of money but he’s a young kid coming to a new league.
“In Germany he was struggling on the bench towards the end and now he’s had to really work hard to become a starting player again at Chelsea, and now he’s scoring goals and creating chances for other players.
