Lampard reveals mother anguish

Published Add your comment

Frank Lampard will return to the bedside of his seriously ill mother on Wednesday after admitting he has been through the hardest time of his life.

Lampard and other members of his family have been keeping a bedside vigil ever since his mum Pat was admitted to hospital with pneumonia just over a week ago, but an improvement in her condition gave the midfielder the incentive to play in Chelsea´s Champions League semi-final against Liverpool at Anfield on Tuesday night.

"This time last week was very bleak," revealed Lampard. "I won´t go into details but we were getting a very bleak outlook. That was the hardest moment for me in my life."
