Lampard explains Chelsea training programme during football hiatus

Frank Lampard has explained how Chelsea are keeping the players fit during the football postponement, as Chelsea prepare to keep their top-four spot.

It has been over a month since Chelsea’s last game, the 4-0 Premier League victory over Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton at Stamford Bridge on March 8.

The Premier League have announced the decision to extend the season indefinitely, as we are all waiting to see the end of this pandemic outbreak.

Having only a three-point lead over fifth-placed Manchester United at the table, Chelsea want to make sure the players will be ready to hit the ground running once the competition is finally back on.

And according to Lampard, Chelsea are not leaving the players to their own devices.

Speaking in Sky Sports’ Total Football Shows, Lampard said: “It is a bit of a mixture — we are always in touch and that’s not just me. That’s the fitness coach, strength and conditioning, all the staff are in touch.

“Certain coaches will be in touch with them regularly, they get plans every week. Then last week we came off it a little bit.

“They always have a coach in contact, they are doing some video calls on the bike or strength in conditioning.”

Some of the players have posted their training session on their social media, including Antonio Rudiger, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Mateo Kovacic.
