Despite losing three straight games while serving as Chelsea’s interim manager, Wesley Fofana has praised Frank Lampard’s effect
After Graham Potter was fired, Lampard was appointed as interim manager until the end of the 2022–2023 season, although the Blues’ performance hasn’t improved. Lampard has overseen three consecutive losses since being hired, to Wolves, Real Madrid, and high-flying Brighton at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Young defender Fofana stated to Telefoot that Lampard had helped the team regain their confidence despite this terrible run of losses.
The second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal between Real Madrid was also discussed by Fofana during this time. Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio scored both goals in the first leg loss for the Blues at the Santiago Bernabeu, while Ben Chilwell, who started the first game, will miss the second leg owing to his Wednesday night red card.
The Blues’ previous unexpected Champions League victories, according to French teenager Fofana, will serve as motivation for his team as they continue to believe they can win the match.
“Chelsea has already accomplished it following a challenging season prior, with a new coach in place. They triumphed in 2021. Since it is in the club’s DNA, I believe it is conceivable. We are aware that this season has been horrible. Now it’s up to us to demonstrate our abilities. This team has talent, he continued.
