Kompany Praises Lampard

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has praised the attitude of summer signing Frank Lampard. The former Chelsea midfielder recently joined City on a six-month loan deal before he heads back to New York City FC in order to play in the MLS. Lampard has been one of the model professionals in the last decade after the 36-year-old has managed to rise to the top of the game through sheer hard work. While at Chelsea, Lampard frequently received a lot of praise for his attitude in training despite his age.

Ramos Emotional About Di Stefano Demise

Sergio Ramos is deeply sad about the demise of the former Real Madrid striker Alfredo Di Stefano. He went to the club ground yesterday for paying tribute to the Argentinean legend.
Di Stefano passed away a couple of days back after suffering cardiac arrest. He was 88 years of age.

With Ramos, there were some other Madrid players including Iker Casillas present there at Bernabeu as well and every one had a lot of nice things to say about Di Stefano.

Lampard Released By Chelsea

Frank Lampard was released by Chelsea towards the end of last season after more than 13 years at the club. During this time, he has broken numerous records and became one of the best players to have represented the club. This elite status is set to reward him with a job that he chooses, according to Chelsea manager José Mourinho. The Portuguese is a huge fan of Lampard and he is thought to have played a crucial role in ensuring that the midfielder was given a new 12 month contract last summer.

Lampard Held Impressive Season With Chlsea

John Terry has already extended his stay with Chelsea as the veteran defender will be remaining at Stamford Bridge at least until the end of the upcoming season but there are a number of other performers in the Premier League club that have a contract which is reaching its end in the next few weeks and a contract extension remains unclear.

Ashley Cole has sparked the attention of Inter Milan; the Italian side has already signed Nemanja Vidic from Manchester United and is keen on adding more influential and veteran players to their squad.

LAMPARD REACHES 250

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard reached yet another milestone after scoring 250 goals at club level following his goal against Stoke City during this weekend.

Lampard stepped up to take the penalty that would give him this milestone, but it was saved by goalkeeper Asmir Begovic. The rebound, though, fell kindly for the former West Ham man, who is regarded as one of the best to have represented the Chelsea. He is already the club’s all-time top scorer having recently crossed the 200 mark.

NO EASY GAMES

Frank Lampard has said that Chelsea should not be lackadaisical in their approach to the match against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge just because the gunners do not have trophy winning experience in recent years. Arsenal will be the visitors to Stamford Bridge this weekend and they will be hoping to enhance their chances of winning a trophy this campaign.

Training For Becoming A Coach

Frank Lampard might be the only one out of the three veterans to get a new contract at the end of the period. Lampard seems to be pleased with the new contract. He seems to be confident for signing up one more year at Chelsea and then turning to become a coach.

CHELSEA PERFORM

Frank Lampard and John Terry even at their fairly elevated age are still considered to be key figures for Chelsea and Jose Mourinho as they are regular starters for the Portuguese coach and are consistent players in the squad.

For the past few months Chelsea was at the verge of extending the current contract of both players and according to Mourinho, everything will come naturally.

FUTURE IS BRIGHT

Despite the recent changes that Chelsea has been experiencing in the past few years in which they have gone through 9 different managers, Frank Lampard believes the future is bright and better than ever with the return of Jose Mourinho.

‘After the instability of the past couple of years, it’s nice to be a bit more settled. Personally, I was delighted he returned because I knew what a great manager he’d be for the club and for me,’ Lampard told TalkSport.

BARRY IMPRESSES

The manager of Everton FC, Roberto Martinez, has hailed Gareth Barry for his performance in the match against Aston Villa and has said that the 32 years old midfielder can still make a comeback to the England team.

Barry was in great rhythm the other day at Villa Park and he guided the Toffees to a comfortable 2-0 win.

The England manager Roy Hodgson was also there to watch the game. He had actually come with the purpose of having a look at the young guns, but, he would have certainly been impressed to see one of the English veterans playing that way.
