Koulibaly backs ‘legend’ Lampard to improve Chelsea

Kalidou Koulibaly has backed Frank Lampard to improve Chelsea following his appointment as interim manager until the end of the season.

Lampard has returned to Chelsea on a short-term deal until the summer, following the club’s decision to sack Graham Potter. Lampard is Chelsea’s all-time record goalscorer and previously spent 18 months as the Blues’ head coach between 2019 and 2021.


His second spell as manager began with a 1-0 defeat at Wolves last weekend, but Koulibaly has backed Lampard to succeed at Stamford Bridge and believes the 44-year-old’s past experience in west London can aid his return.

“We know he is a legend here and he has already trained half of the team,” Koulibaly told BBC Sport.

“The situation is like this for the moment, but in training he has been saying he will support us until the end and help us to be out of this situation.

“We know it is a difficult situation for everybody, including the club, manager and supporters, but we will give everything to get out of this and make them happy.

“Our first objective is to win the games and make our supporters happy.”
