Frank Lampard while speaking to the press ahead of Chelsea’s UEFA Champions League game with Valencia in Spain tomorrow night, and the topic of “unpleasantness” off the pitch has was brought up in the conversation.
The media captured Ross Barkley in a compromising circumstance this week, and for the second time this season. The English man was caught partying topless at a night club reportedly in Dubai, during the November international break . Just as the first time, Lampard was forced to address it both in the press conference and behind the scenes.
With N’Golo Kante back to full fitness, Barkley now faces a tough task of breaking into the first eleven at Chelsea upon recovery, coupled with these controversies.
He might well have a part to play as the season goes on, but right now Barkley feels like one of the most replaceable parts of this Chelsea team.
Right now Frank Lampard is very much concerned with seeing his young Chelsea side into the knockout phase of the Champions league.
