Chelsea signings show Roman Abramovich still committed, says club manager Frank Lampard.
The Chelsea boss has highlighted the recent signings of Ajax’s Hakim Ziyech and RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner as proof enough the Russian billionaire is still very much backing the club in their attempts to close the gap on Liverpool and Manchester City at the top of the table.
And Lampard was also quick to hail his relationship with technical adviser Petr Cech and director Marina Granovskaia, alongside his links to the west London club’s Russian owner.
“When you say that I know the owner very well, in the workplace, to a degree, I do.”
“But I also understand what he wants for this club. I played under it, I felt it as a player when he first came here so I get that, and with my conversations with Marina that’s always relayed.”
“I want the same as him. In terms of his commitment, I think he has shown his commitment regularly to our football club.”
“We have done some business now that will hopefully improve us for next season and we want to keep moving forward.”
