'Disgusted' Lampard slams racist abuse of Abraham

Kante Outran Every Player In The UEFA Super Cup Despite Being Injured

@SteveBowerComm: In an illustrious career, the moment when Frank Lampard walks out of the tunnel at Stamford Bridge for the first time as Chelsea head coach will be right up there in the club record scorer's proudest moments.

Frank Lampard says he is "disgusted" at the actions of a "so-called Chelsea fan" after Tammy Abraham was targeted with racial abuse online.

"I think the best thing is for him to move on", Lampard said, quoted by The Guardian.

"It is very easy to be negative after losing 4-0 but there were a lot of good signs during the game against Manchester United".

Kante is expected to play a key role for Chelsea against Leicester City on Sunday, August 18, at Stamford Bridge after surviving 120 minutes of football against Liverpool. What I have felt in the six weeks that I have been here is that the players are a good group and they have a lot of spirit. "But it depends on Tammy for starters and he's not said that to me and, if he did, the reaction would be not that you're giving in to it".

N'Golo Kante dominated talk about positional play in the Premier League last season, after he was shifted further up the pitch by former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri.

"To have two more days recovery at this stage early in the season, it's clear that it affects your preparation and it's an advantage to them going in", said Lampard, whose side next host Leicester City on Sunday. When something like this happens it's the first thing I do.

Lampard said he had offered words of comfort to Abraham, the 21-year-old who has returned after a loan at Aston Villa with Chelsea unable to make new signings due to a transfer ban.

It remains to be seen if Abraham returns to the team after he started the United game and was then a substitute against Liverpool as Olivier Giroud came in.

"But where there are ideas that are different, I have to be strong in those and stick to what I believe will take the club forwards on the pitch". I want us to be competitive this year and we still have a strong squad.

The ex-England global said: "I certainly won't be changing things for change's sake".
