London, Sep 4 (ANI): Midfielder Frank Lampard has said that they are no pensioners, hitting back at critics who question the ageing Chelsea squad.
Chelsea relies heavily on experienced players like Lampard, 32, defender John Terry, 29, and striker Didier Drogba, 32.
Lampard said that such experience is necessary, and added that Chelsea will once again prove people wrong.
“It is a load of rubbish when I hear talk about there only being one or two years left in our spine. This has been going on for a year or so,” The Sun quoted him, as saying.
“Sometimes that is mind games from other managers or press talk – and we proved them wrong last season. We have players who are experienced – and you can’t buy experience in football,” Lampard said.
Lampard, who missed England’s European championship qualifier against Bulgaria due to a hernia problem, said he is as hungry for success as ever.
“Every year I set my goals again. I don’t lose any ambition or drive. I would love to win the Champions League one day but I would love to win more Premier League titles as well – so it’s easy to self-motivate,” he said.
“The older you get, the more you appreciate what you have got as a footballer. If I can keep my level up to the way I am playing now, I believe I can go on playing for many more years,” Lampard added. (ANI)
