David Luiz Excited to Usher in Lampard Era
Chelsea defender David Luiz says he and his teammates are relishing the Frank Lampard era after the team’s pre-season tour of Dublin.
Lampard took over from Maurizio Sarri as manager this summer and Luiz says the team are beginning to get an idea of what Lampard wants after their camp in Ireland.
“He leads the team just like he did when he played, but now it's a different way. He can no longer run or score goals for us, but he remains a leader so it's easy to understand.
“It's great to have him and all the staff with us again, because everyone has known the club for a long time. They love Chelsea and were waiting for this opportunity.
“We had a very good time in Dublin. We are beginning to understand what Lampard wants from us and we will continue in the same way: working hard and knowing what we have to do on the field.”
