These Chelsea fans loved this beautiful moment between Frank Lampard and Mateo Kovacic this afternoon, Lampard joked with the star after a chance vs Sheffield United.
In the 36th minute of this afternoon’s clash between Chelsea and Sheffield United, Mateo Kovacic came close to ending his shocking run without a goal.
The 25-year-old’s effort ran just wide of the post and Lampard hilariously decided to gesture to the star that he was ‘that close’ to scoring.
Lampard’s little gesture got a smile out of Kovacic and it’s clear that the pair are enjoying working together.
Take a look at the lovely moment below:

Lampard seems to be getting the best out of Kovacic after he made his move to Chelsea permanent this summer, according to BBC Sport the Blues splashed £40m on the Croatian’s signing.
We can already see an improvement in Kovacic’s performance and if Lampard can get him scoring, there’s no stopping the creative midfielder this season.
