Lampard is not under pressure with Kepa and Mendy

Mon 07 December 2020 | 16:22

Lampard has talked about Mendy and his future in the team.

Lampard

says that

Mendy

has gained his trust and now he will be Lampard’s first choice for the position.

"There’s no pressure [to pick Kepa], and I am not saying it is being spoken about, it is to win games.”

Lampard said in a press conference

.

"I do that through selections game-by-game and Mendy, of course, has made himself a permanent fixture at this point.

"The pressure to win games means I pick people in form whether it is a striker, winger or goalkeeper, whoever. At the same time, the game tomorrow is a chance to give Edou a rest and give Kepa a game.

"He is training well and he deserves it."

And about

Kepa’s

reaction to the situation he added:

"How he has been with Edou is very supportive with him. I see that and I see it from afar sometimes as they work together with Hilario [goalkeeper coach] a lot.

"What I do see when I watch from afar and we are in hotel rooms a lot at the moment is that he is someone who is supporting him quietly, which is right.

"He is also training, well which is the main thing that I look at because the training particularly for goalkeepers, because of the one-on-one training nature, there can’t be one that drops their level.

"They have to all push each other and I see that in the group and I am very pleased with that from Kepa. His reaction has been spot on."
