Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard has come out to say that he is not shocked by Jose Mourinho’s accusation that his players try to win cheap penalties.
Lampard recently revealed that it is not true, because none of the penalties Chelsea has gotten this season was awarded for a player diving inside the box.
According to him, it is very normal for managers to challenge other teams, so Jose’s words do not affect him or his players.
He added that he would not tell Jose or any other manager how to do a press conference and he does not intend to dwell on the things he says.
His words, “I wasn’t surprised by those comments,”
“There have been no incidents of diving at Chelsea this season that I’ve seen.
“But I wasn’t surprised by it, no. I think it’s very normal that managers in and around the clubs challenging sometimes mention others with those statements. It didn’t affect me.”
“I’m not going to tell Jose or any other manager how to do a press conference.
“I think we all know when we watch these penalty decisions, we know what ones are penalties, what ones are dives, ones that are cleverly bought. I don’t want to dwell on it.”
