'Slow' Chelsea had no solutions on Lampard's managerial bow, says Hasselbaink

Chelsea's mannequins have become the unfortunate victims of Frank Lampard's return to the club as the head coach prepares to wrap up his first pre-season trip in charge of the Blues.

One of the striking elements of the first week of the Lampard reign has been how little love the Chelsea mannequins have been getting from the players.

He got his tenure underway with a 1-1 draw on Wednesday against League of Ireland outfit Bohemians, and Spanish full-back Cesar Azpilicueta has said that they are excited to have him as their manager.

"We've only been back just a few days so there had been some pressure on the lads and we have been working them very hard".

No doubt his years in London will always be a big part of his career and life memories, and time will tell if he decides to change the cover of his mobile phone when he gets a chance to photograph his children in white. However, Azpilicueta doesn't think his lack of experience in the technical area will be an issue. Frank's experience as a manager is one year in Derby but the football experience he has, playing at the highest level and working under a lot of very good managers, means we have nothing to be anxious about. We have to be grateful and feel the passion for the shirt.

"We've been training really hard with Frank this week", the Spaniard said.

Under the guidance of club legend Frank Lampard as manager and with the support of fans and teammates alike, Pulisic can surely develop into one of the Premier League's finest wingers. All the senior players. are happy and we are trying to help all of them.

"This season, I wouldn't say is a write-off, but the expectation must, if they've any sense at all, be quite low". 'Since I came here we've had people leave every season like Lampard, John Terry, Didier Drogba, Ashley Cole and Petr Cech, ' said Azpilicueta, signed from Marseille in 2012.

Kovacic, who was on loan at the Blues last term, was able to join permanently due to him already being registered as a Chelsea player.

Azpilicueta added, "it was hard but every year we had a chance to bring back trophies to the Bridge and I think we've been doing quite well". Now we have something unusual - the transfer ban - which gives a chance for a lot of young players, players coming back from loan. 'We're not going to win anything thinking about the past, complaining.
