Villas-Boas keen to keep Lampard

Published Add your comment

Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has claimed he and Frank Lampard enjoy a "fantastic" relationship and dismissed any suggestion otherwise.

Villas-Boas' handling of Lampard has been one of the biggest talking points of his reign, with the Blues boss having no qualms dropping a player who was previously untouchable at Stamford Bridge.

Lampard has refused to bite his tongue over his unhappiness at being in and out of the side, while there have been increasing numbers of reports claiming all is not well between the midfielder and his manager, but Villas-Boas has dismissed all the reports of discord - describing his relationship with his vice-captain as "fantastic" and adding: "We speak every day."
