Lampard does not want to repeat the same mistakes Mourinho made – Lampard want to keep the youngsters on the team by his side and not sign them away.
With Chelsea under a transfer ban when Lampard gained control, he had to advance from inside, giving opportunities to any player like Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori.
“I thought Mason Mount’s performance [during the 2-0 win at Tottenham on Sunday], not just to isolate Mason as I thought Tammy was fantastic and Tomori was too, but his performance was a great example of why you want to stick with and have patience with these young players because he is a young boy and there will be moments where the game will be difficult for him and he will learn,” said the Chelsea boss.
“And then there will be games like the other day when you can see the player that he is.
“If we are not patient and stick with the players we might be in a situation before where absolutely top world-class players at this minute have been at Chelsea when they were 20 or 21 and managers maybe did not stick with them so much then.
“I am in a position where I will stick with them.”
