Furious Frank Lampard blasted Chelsea star in dressing room after disrespectful behaviour

Posted by

According to the Athletic (subscription required), Frank Lampard was left furious with Marcos Alonso after the full-back attempted to watch the second-half of the draw vs West Brom on the team bus.

Alonso was substituted at halftime for club captain Cesar Azpilicueta with the Blues 3-0 down to the newly-promoted side, after taking a shower the defender headed to the bus instead of the bench.

The Athletic report that an enraged Lampard confronted the left-back after full-time, before blasting Alonso’s downright disrespectful behaviour in front of the entire dressing room.

It’s added that when Alonso finally returned back inside the Hawthorns that the full-back was actually seated in a different area to the rest of his teammates, breaking strict Covid-19 guidelines.

One of the Athletic’s sources even claimed that they can’t see Alonso playing for Chelsea ‘ever again’ after this incident, with a week of the transfer window left we’ll see how that pans out.

Great going forward but suspect in defence.

It was no surprise to see the 29-year-old taken off at the interval with the ace making costly errors for two of the Baggies’ goals, the left-back’s wayward header led to Callum Robinson’s shock opener.

The Spaniard also left Kyle Bartley completely unmarked before the centre-back made it 3-0 following a corner, not to mention the attack-minded ace’s lack of pace on full show as referenced above.

The Athletic’s inside sources also claim that Lampard was the ‘angriest they’ve ever seen him’ after the incident, making it clear to the dressing room that Alonso’s actions showed he wasn’t bothered.

Alonso, like Emerson Palmieri, was already in a difficult situation at Stamford Bridge following the big-money addition of Ben Chilwell this summer, this behaviour will hardly help his case.

Lampard was certainly justified to put Alonso on blast in such a manner, the left-back was trying to get back onto the bus whilst his teammates rallied to salvage a 3-3 draw. It really says it all.

  1. Lampard should stop blaming the players, let him go and learn how to select a team for a particular match.

    1. When a coach handles a team for a full season without buying anybody and still made the top four in EPL you still think the person doesn’t know what he is doing? I feel sorry for you people who always think that Rome was built I a day. Patient is the word and I know by the time the team found its rythm they will be difficult to be stopped. That’s my stand

  2. Lampard lacked the qualities to be Chelsea manager,he doesn’t know how to select a team for a game, he doesn’t even know who to substitute when the game is not going well. It will be good if Chelsea board can find an experienced manager not a coach who don’t know what to do when his players are not doing well.

  3. Lampard came late to realize whom Alonso is, he should know that Alonso is never an attacking minded player, and any club who want to build an attacking force should be knowing with pace players and creativity, Alonso is slow and lack creativity abilities, not energetic nor skiful neither pace, only that he has shot on target, but winning balls they will not be opportunity to uitilize, so he should go back to his drawing board as a coach to know the player he is to use it come to physical fit and pace match thanks

  4. I strongly believe Chelsea gat squad not yet a gang.lampard has shown severally he does allows sentiment to becloud his sense of reasoning.he needs to work on his tactics and man management.that team gat potentials that needs to be harnessed only if the fans and the board w’d be patient after Marquee signings.
