Michy Batshuayi has opened up about his future at Chelsea and left many fans keen to see him sign a new contract.
We were not able to sign any big strikers during the summer window, and that meant that Lampard had to bring back Tammy Abraham to give him a chance of proving himself at Stamford Bridge, especially as the young striker netted an impressive 26-goals last season for Aston Villa.
But it also meant that players like Batshuayi, who has been in the fringes of the side for a while now, have been able to come in and prove themselves to the club legend and earn a regular place in his side, something the striker has managed in the early stages of the season.
But he said on the Metro: ‘I have never been a full-fledged starter, but Chelsea is my club, that’s where I feel at home. It’s a club I love deeply.’
Batshuayi also revealed how he has matured as a professional footballer, adding: ‘When I was young, it’s true that I had some problems of discipline.
‘But what young person doesn’t? Today, I’m 26 years old, I can channel myself and I work at training and in the game.’
Meanwhile, Real Madrid star Eden Hazard has claimed that Frank Lampard could become one of the worlds very best managers.
There were many in the media who were surprised that we made the decision to hand Lampard the role as coach during the summer, especially as Maurizio Sarri handed the club the Europa League cup and Champions League football, and especially as he had limited time in the game as a boss.
But despite all the criticism at the beginning of the season, the legend has got this very exciting, young, side playing some brilliant football and there are many out there that believe that this side could do some amazing things over the next few seasons.
And when asked if he was surprised by Lampard’s impact at Chelsea while on international duty with Belgium, Hazard told reporters that he believes that his former team-mate has the managerial ability to go on and become one of the games best managers.
He was quoted on the Sky Sports website: “No, not at all. I know Frank as a player, not as a manager, but he’s a great guy. He’s showed already after four months that he can be one of the best managers in the world.
“The good thing is that they are playing with young players, young English players. For England it’s good, for Chelsea it’s good. They are lucky to have young players with quality.
“I don’t know [if the transfer ban has actually been good for Chelsea]. Maybe with two or three more players, they would be first. When I saw them play it’s nice, they all play together.
“I still have good friends there. I follow them all the time. They are winning at the moment so I’m just happy for them.”
