Lampard keen to extend Willian and Giroud contracts

Lampard keen to extend Willian and Giroud contracts”

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard says he is hopeful players whose contracts expire in June will sign short-term deals and finish the Premier League season disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

This agreement needs to be mutual between player and club, with the deadline to agree an extension set at June 23rd.

Lampard also discussed his plans ahead of a potential return to training, with Premier League clubs set to vote today on whether to approve plans to return to training in small groups this week. "So it's going to have to be something we look at", Lampard told Chelsea website.

"I think we have to upgrade that communication so players know what they're going through, and then they can make decisions".

"Of course they'll be concerned about themselves, in terms of how training is now and if the pre-season is a rush, they're going to have to make sure they're alright".

Pedro has battled numerous injuries but has two goals and three assists in 18 matches, while Caballero started nine matches including six-straight when Kepa Arrizabalaga fell out of favor with Lampard.

Premier League clubs will certainly elect on Monday over whether an initial stage of training can return to, which would certainly see gamers keeping social distancing standards in tiny teams, according to federal government limitations to stay clear of the spread of the coronavirus.

"We're very fortunate that we have a huge complex at Cobham, but it will be minimal numbers of staff which means we won't be able to work with the players like normal".

"Our job from the coaching side is to make sure we're careful with the players", he added.

Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham is amongst a host of players to have expressed his concerns over a return to football in recent weeks, citing his fears over potentially passing on the virus to vulnerable members of his family.

"The first steps will have to be very careful but all managers will be thinking a similar thing".

"I know they are good lads, their intentions and feelings for their family are good", he stated. They want to get here and work.

The footballing authorities are determined to push on with the Premier League's return, though, as various proposals are being put forward to find a solution to continuing the 2019/20 campaign.

"We're really keen to return, we really miss playing and doing what we love". Hopefully, we can make that arrangement so they can stay with us.
