James on advantage of being managed by Lampard
Chelsea defender Reece James has explained the main advantage of being managed by Frank Lampard.
James has admitted he is learning from Lampard due to his own experiences as a professional player for the Blues.
Lampard played 648 times for Chelsea, and will go down as one of the greatest to ever put on the blue shirt.
“It’s great playing under a Chelsea legend,” James said to the Mirror .
“When I was supporting the club and growing up, he was one of the leaders in the team so for him to manage you, and show you things that he learned within the game, a lot of people listen and you can learn a lot from him.”
James has broken into the first-team at Stamford Bridge this season after an impressive loan spell at Wigan Athletic during the last campaign.
