Chelsea legend criticises Lampard for not winning his first game

Former Chelsea striker, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, has criticised the team’s performance in Frank Lampard ‘s first game in charge.

The Blues were held to a 1-1 draw by Irish side Bohemians.

Lampard was hoping to begin on a winning note, but an Eric Molloy goal in the 89th minute, cancelled out Michy Batshuayi’s opener.

Hasselbaink, who netted 88 goals in 177 games in all competitions for the Premier League outfit, was far from happy with what he saw.

“They lost the ball way too easy.

“Players were having too many touches, sometimes seven, eight touches and it slows the game down.

“It will be a lesson for Frank to see players and in a way it will make his mind up.

“Moving the ball fast is his idea of how he wants to play the game.

“The majority of successful teams do move the ball quickly.

“We saw today, especially in the second half, certain players were dwelling a little bit too much on the ball.

“They didn’t have a solution before they had the ball.

“It might be that it’s pre-season, it might be that they’re not fit yet and it will come.

“For some it might be a little too much,” Hasselbaink said on Chelsea’s official coverage of the match.
