Frank Lampard has singled out Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori for praise in his first interview after becoming Chelsea’s new manager. The 41-year-old, who spent 13 years as a player at Chelsea, has returned to Stamford Bridge to replace Maurizio Sarri who joined Juventus last month. During his single season at Chelsea, Sarri was criticised for not taking a closer look as some of the club’s academy players and giving few minutes to Callum Hudson-Odoi during the first half of the campaign. Reports also claimed this week that Sarri did not watch a single minute of Chelsea’s Under-23s last season or monitor the academy players in training. Lampard, meanwhile, has vowed to create a clear path to the first-team squad for Chelsea’s young players and says he was impressed with the attitudes of Mount and Tomori during their loan spell at Derby last season.
