Three years back, no one would have thought that the players like Sadio Mane, Trent-Alexander Arnold and Andrew Robertson would become the most deadly players of Liverpool. But one guy believed and he proved everyone else wrong. Jurgen Klopp has taken the Merseyside club to another level with group of players he wanted.
Frank Lampard too is someone who believes in the players he wants rather than chasing the big names of fame. The Englishman can encore Liverpool’s strategy in order to make the Blues Champions once again.
Talking about the same, former England boss Hoddle talked about the same.
Hoddle told The Sun: “When you look at the squad you have to wonder what is going on above him in terms of recruitment. For me, Frank needs a clear transfer policy to take his team forward.
“He has been getting it right on the training pitch, on the football side, but the next big phase for him will be how the club operate in the transfer market.
“If Frank gets the players he wants, not the players someone else wants, he has an excellent chance, in two or three years’ time, of having the right squad and the right team to challenge for the Premier League title.
“Chelsea have to treat Frank exactly the way Liverpool treated Jurgen Klopp, give him the time to rebuild, give him the players he wants. He needs a clearly defined pathway, a clear line of communication, which I don’t think has always been the case in the past.
“If I was a Chelsea fan, I’d think their team is in the right hands, as Frank is doing an excellent job under the circumstances and the future will be bright.”
Chelsea have to be patient with Lampard as Liverpool were with Chelsea and they would surely reap the benefits with the talent they have.
