Chelsea vs Ajax: What I Told My Players At Half-Time- Lampard

Chelsea gaffer, Frank Lampard, said he rightly predicted the final outcome of their return-leg UEFA Champions League match against Ajax on Tuesday.

The Chelsea legend said he told the players during half-time that the game was either going to end on 3-3 or 4-4.

The Blues were trailing three goals behind Ajax before the two central defenders of the visitors-Daley Blind and Joel Veltman were sent off.

This gave Chelsea a safe landing as they were able to equalise and scored the fifth goal until it was disallowed by VAR.

Speaking after the match, Lampard was quoted by Express UK as saying: “I can’t explain the game.

“I said [to my players] at half time it will be 3-3 or 4-4, we were so in the game.

“We looked dangerous and I felt we would build momentum.

“I am not happy overall, this is the Champions League and we made too many mistakes.

“The biggest pleasure is the spirit the whole stadium showed. I can’t give you much on the red cards, I didn’t really see what they were for.

“At half time I would have taken a draw for sure. Let’s take it as what it was. I was expecting somewhere towards 10 minutes of added time, not sure where four came from.”
