Chelsea coach, Frank Lampard has come out to say that Manchester United’s youth players can be compared to the talent in his own club even if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Chelsea has the edge because of the club’s loan system.
Ahead of today’s Carabao Cup round-of-16 clash at Stamford Bridge between both teams, Ole said Chelsea’s youth were more experienced that was he has at his disposal because a lot of the young players have gone on loan.
However, Lampard did not totally agree by saying the youth players from both clubs are comparable.
His words, “[Marcus] Rashford’s a young player. He’s got how many caps for his country?”
“[Axel] Tuanzebe went on loan last year and did fantastic in the Championship. Dan James has come in and been a fantastic signing for them.
“I think we’ve all got players with relative experience or not. I think Man United have got loads of good players.
“In terms of the loan system, there probably is some credit. The loans need to be the right loans, need to be the right clubs.
“I was fortunate to have Mason [Mount] and Fikayo [Tomori] last year, they were good for me and hopefully I was good for them. That’s how the loan system works at its best when you’re talking about players with really good potential.”
