Chelsea interim manager Frank Lampard has made a shocking decision. Under-14 (U-14) team players were called up for first-team training.
스포츠토토 The British media Daily Star reported on the 12th (hereinafter Korean time), ‘Interim coach Lampard has summoned players from the U-14 team to Chelsea’s first team training. Fans ask if I’m kidding.”
Chelsea are in the worst situation. Directors Thomas Tuchel and Graham Porter stepped down one after another. Currently, interim coach Lampard is leading the team. Chelsea is ranked 11th with 11 wins, 9 draws and 14 losses (42 points) in 34 English Premier League (EPL) matches in the 2022-2023 season. It is already difficult to sortie for the European stage next season. However, Chelsea aims to win in the home game against Nottingham held at Stamford Bridge in London, England on the 13th.
The Daily Star said, ‘Chelsea U-14 team captain Charlie Holland has joined first-team training. It is unlikely that he will be included in the matchday starting lineup. But Lampard aspires to a legacy of passing the experience on to the next generation.”
Fans are very upset. According to the media’s report, fans said, ‘Is this a joke? What’s the point?’, ‘Does Chelsea really need more players in first-team training?’
