Lampard Wants Chelsea Stay for ‘Low Maintenance’ Willian
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard says he hopes the club and Willian can come to an agreement over a new contract.
The Brazilian’s deal runs until the end of the season and Blues manager Lampard hopes he can be convinced to extend his terms.
“He’s in talks with the club, he speaks with the club on the money side of it,” Lampard confirmed in his pre-Southampton press conference.
“If there was one thing I wanted from him at the start of the season it was a question of: ‘Can you score more goals because your talent says that you should do’.
“That means sometimes running into space behind defenders, and getting the other side, and he is doing all those things.
“And the experience helps when you have got a young team, when the other options are younger, experience certainly helps.
“All his team-mates love him, he’s a low-maintenance player to have in the squad; so yes I am really happy with him.
“He’s great for me, especially when he plays like he did the other day; it was an incredible performance.”
