Chelsea keeper Willy Caballero says it is ‘fantastic’ that Frank Lampard is now the club’s head coach.

Caballero played alongside Lampard for a season at Manchester City in the 2014/15 campaign and the veteran shot-stopper isn’t surprised the former midfielder has successfully made the move into coaching.

‘I played with Frank for a season at Man City and even then you could see that he had those leadership skills in his character,’ Caballero told the club website.

‘During my time at City, I often spoke with Pablo Zabaleta and we would say that English teams needed big players who have won a lot of things in their careers to become coaches here.

So I think it’s fantastic that Lampard is now our head coach, it’s fantastic for him and also for Chelsea.

‘It’s been superb with Frank so far.

The way he spoke to us on the first day was amazing and he’s been great so far.

‘He told us how he wants us to play, his ideas, how he wants us to train and how much work we must put in to be successful.

He explained what it means to play for Chelsea and we are all excited to work under him.’
