Hasselbaink hails Lampard, says the team urgently needs defenders


Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is happy with how Frank Lampard has steadied the ship even without any signings, and says the team is in a urgent need for defenders.

The Former Chelsea Striker was speaking to the Media in the early hours of today after being asked about how well his former has fared under Lampard this season. Chelsea have conceded the most goals among the top ten EPL teams this season, and this statistics worries Hasselbaink.

“When you look at the team Frank has, with what he has got, he’s brilliant. If you analyse them very, very well they are in the top four but they have had 49 goals against them that is way too much. If you want to compete with the big boys that [defensive record] has to get better significantly. If you asked him (Lampard), that’s the department that he is really disappointed about. If you see the type of goals that are going in they are easy to defend”.
