Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta has said that the appointment of Frank Lampard as the new manager has brought more togetherness at the club. The Blues had a mixed 2018/19 campaign under former boss Maurizio Sarri and there were periods where the manager and players had drawn criticism from the club’s supporters.
Nonetheless, they ended the previous season on a high with Europa League success and Azpilicueta believes the mood has been brightened with the recruitment of Lampard, he said:“That feeling can be massive. It is true that last season, for periods, we didn’t give the fans what they expected. Our performances were not good enough and the reason they were not happy and negative.
