ENGLAND – Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has praised Mateo Kovacic for his display against Watford.
Lampard hailed the midfielder’s ability to move the ball and drive forwards.
Kovacic impressed alongside Jorginho at the heart of the Chelsea midfield in a 2-1 win and earned special praise from his manager for his efforts.
“Kovacic, his ability to play – him and Jorgi together – and then that ability to drive from midfield, that’s not the norm.
“As a midfield player it’s your worst nightmare having a player who can play and then drive by you out of nowhere.
“He was doing that today to great effect. Really pleased with him,” Lampard told Sky Sports.
