The manager of Swansea City, Michael Laudrup, has hailed Frank Lampard and has said that Lampard was the guy who took the match away from his side at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Swansea City took on Chelsea in an away game on Sunday and got beaten by 2-0. Frank Lampard scored the second goal for the Blues in that match. That was a penalty goal and it came just before the half time break.
Talking to the reporters in the post match press conference, Laudrup said, “Look, the great players may get older, but, they never lose the quality that they have got. Lampard has shown that in this season. Yes, his pace has gone down a little bit, but, he is still as good as anyone.”
Despite the defeat against Chelsea, Swansea City’s position in the points table hasn’t got affected. They are still at no. 9 with 42 points in 34 matches. They have won 10 games, have lost 12, while, the remaining 12 games have ended in draws.
When asked about the target of the team in the remainder of the league, Laudrup said, “Our target is to finish in top 10. In the last 5 games, our performance hasn’t been up to the mark, but, still we are at the ninth position and that’s incredible.”
When asked about the reason of Swansea’s poor performance in the last one and half months, he said, “We obviously haven’t played consistent football off late, but, you should also consider the fact that we have faced some top teams in the last few weeks. We have played against three teams who are in top 5 and it’s not easy to defeat them to be honest.”
Swansea City will play its next match against Manchester City at the Liberty Stadium on 4th of May.
