Former Chelsea defender Alex has accused Andre Villas-Boas of disrespecting Frank Lampard.

Villas-Boas' fractious relationship with Lampard dogged his eight-month reign, which ended with the Portuguese's sacking on Sunday. He also froze both Alex and Nicolas Anelka out of the first-team squad in November after the pair handed in transfer requests.

Alex, who joined Paris St Germain in January, told O Jogo: "Andre is not the kind of person who talks a lot, he's someone who is a bit closed. That's just the way he is. I saw some comments of Lampard recently and I think he deserved more respect."
