Frank Lampard reveals Chelsea legends WhatsApp group and what they discuss

Under new boss Antonio Conte, Chelsea are hoping to return to the top of English football this season.

Even if they do win the league, though, their current squad still has some way to go before they will be viewed on the same level as recent club legends such as Didier Drogba, Petr Cech and Frank Lampard.

That trio, alongside the likes of current captain John Terry, helped the Stamford Bridge club to a host of trophies and, speaking to The Times today, Lampard has revealed they still keep in touch via a WhatsApp group that any Chelsea fan would love to get a sneak peak at.

"We have a group WhatsApp of myself, Ash (Ashley Cole), Didier (Drogba), John (Terry) and big Petr (Cech),” Lampard explained to Henry Winter.

"It goes quiet every now and again, then we have a few reminiscences about old times, memories we never want to lose, and about what’s happening now."

Considering their experiences in the game, both past and present, there is sure to be plenty to keep them talking in the group and it certainly sounds like an upgrade on the standard groups set up up and down the country between Sunday league teams.

So, what was the latest message someone sent? Turns out it was current Arsenal 'keeper Cech who wanted to update his fellow Chelsea legends about his recent car trouble.

"Pete crashed his car the other day and sent us a picture of it," Lampard revealed.

With 24 Premier League winners medals between them and countless international caps and Premier League goals, it certainly is a star-studded group - although you have to feel sorry for the likes of Branislav Ivanović and Michael Essien who didn't make the cut.

With Drogba, Cole and Lampard all now plying their trade in American's Major League Soccer, and Cech at Arsenal, it is only Terry who remains at Stamford Bridge as the club looks to bounce back from a disappointing 2015-16 campaign.

You have to wonder whether, with the west London club struggling for results last year, JT ever dropped in any messages to his former teammates asking if they were available for a Saturday kick off.
