Frank Lampard believes Enzo is Chelsea's future

Chelsea caretaker manager Frank Lampard has praised midfielder Enzo Fernandez as the club’s “future.”

The West Londoners would believe they had struck gold when they signed Fernandez from Benfica for a club-record cost of £107 million.

Despite the fact that the club is not in the best of form, the Argentine usually puts in a decent effort on the pitch.

In the midst of criticism, Lampard praised his performance on the field.

“He’s a fantastic talent,” Lampard told the media. “It’s incredible for a young player to achieve what he has in this football season.”

“It’s a difficult time for him to come to the club, but it’s a challenge that will help him grow.” He is Chelsea’s future."

The Blues will finish the season with nothing and a considerable chance of not qualifying for Europe next season, as they now rank 11th with 39 points.

Their season, though, will continue when they meet Brentford on Wednesday.
