Wonderkid to superstar? Lampard opens up on sensation and leaves Chelsea fans smiling


Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has admitted that Fikayo Tomori is working hard to become a real star in the Premier League.

After being unable to sign any new players during the summer transfer window, it meant that Blues boss Frank Lampard had to bring back a number of talents to help him get through this tough season as Chelsea coach, and one man that was quickly brought back was that of Tomori.

The young defender has been impressive since being given a chance this season under Lampard, and He looked generally assured at the back, despite the clubs inability to keep clean-sheets on a regular basis.

With pace, power and a remarkable reading of the game for a 21-year-old, there have been many out there that firmly believe that Tomori will develop into a class act for Chelsea in the coming seasons, if he is given the time and patients to earn a regular place in Lampards side.

Lampard has revealed that he is a quiet person but was a popular figure in the Derby dressing room last season and is continuing to try and improve, HE SAID:: “He was quiet at Derby. He was quite quiet with me – he wasn’t quiet when they were all together. From a distance, he has definitely got personality.

“And that group last year, the group he was in at Derby, he became very popular in the dressing room and popular with the fans because of his performances.

“He was Player of the Year. The progression was huge but the main thing I saw in him was work ethic. He quietly goes about his business. He trains hard, everything you ask him to do he tries to do and more.”

Lampard added: “How you train will relate to whether you get picked. Those are the rules here. You have to train at a level and he trained so well for a period of time he deserved it (his full debut). Then he gave me a big problem because he played so well and he has continued to do that.

“Yes, he is a project in a way but a nice one because everything you want him to do, he stands up and delivers.”

Look Tomori is a very exciting player that many clubs would love to have in their squads, and keeping hold of him should be a priority for the Blues, especially as he has the talent to be a real leader for the club in the coming seasons.

He is showing great potential and clearly has the ability to shine in BLUES shirt, so fans should be excited about his potential, especially as they need someone like Tomori at the back for the next few years to help the side get back into the habit of winning titles.

He is a great talent and Chelsea ARE VERY LUCKY TO HAVE THIS LAD.
