Lamps looking forward to a new Chelsea era under Ancelotti

Posted By: Staff

London, Aug.4 (ANI): Midfield ace Frank Lampard is looking forward to a new era under Carlo Ancelotti at Chelsea and the final surge towards next summer's World Cup with Fabio Capello's England.

The two managers boast striking similarities and Lampard cannot wait to get cracking on both fronts.

The Sun quoted him as saying: "Most importantly they have the winning mentality. That's why they have won big trophies in their careers. 'Must win' is the only way for them and they don't accept slacking off in games or training. You must give 100 per cent all of the time. They have different styles but are similar in their aims.""They like to work hard and press the opposition when they've got the ball. They prioritise defending well right through the team. Modern football is a lot about winning the ball back quickly and both managers train us to do that - it's a very Italian trait," he added.Lampard, 31, reveals that confidence levels - especially in the England squad - have been sky high since the introduction of some Latin swagger.
