Lampard warns Chelsea fans ahead of new season

Chelsea head coach, Frank Lampard, Tuesday, warned Chelsea fans to desist from singing derogatory songs against their rivals.

This note of caution is coming after the club’s fans allegedly used derogatory words against West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspurs after Chelsea’s 4-3 win over Reading in their last pre-season game.

Goal apiece from Ross Barkley and Kenedy and a brace from Mason Mount gave the Blues a soaring victory.

A section of the fans could be heard singing abusive songs against their London rivals.

The former Chelsea midfielder said he does not want to hear such songs due to the reputation of the club.

Speaking at the post-match conference, the former England player said that “The support for the fans was incredible.

“I didn’t hear the song in question, and of course if there’s a song in the modern day or any day that has offensive words I don’t want to hear that.

“That’s me saying that as a big Chelsea man who really appreciates the support and had it over the years.

“We don’t want songs with offensive words. If the fans could sing other songs then I’ll back that.

“We don’t want to hear that. The club are very clear with the work we do off the pitch about anything that’s offensive or prejudiced and we’ve made a big mark on that in modern years. We don’t want that.”
