We’re relying on him – Lampard vows to unleash best winger on Real Madrid
Chelsea interim manager, Frank Lampard has named the very player that would help the Blues out of the trouble waters this season.
Lampard believes strongly that Raheem Sterling, who he described as one of the best wingers in the world, will rediscover his best form and help salvage Chelsea’s season.
Chelsea have failed to win their last four Premier League matches, and their latest result was a defeat to Wolves on Saturday which put them 17 points behind top four.
Chelsea will play Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals on Wednesday with victory in the competition now their only shot at silverware.
“I think he’s a fantastic player,” Lampard told reporters about the England international.
“He’s been one of the best wingers in the world for a long time — at times, maybe in some people’s opinion, the best.
“I just think he’s a top player. Raheem has shown what a player he is.
“Yeah definitely, ” he added when asked if the England forward would rise to the occasion against Real Madrid.
“In fact, he’s risen to games like that in the past. That’s something we’ll obviously rely on,” he said.
