Chelsea boss pleased with Lampard focus

Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez has praised Frank Lampard for his attitude during the final year of his contract with no sign of the Blues offering the 34 year old a new deal. "He's playing well, working very hard and we're trying to bring the best from him - my position is exactly the same," Benitez said.

"If he can carry on scoring goals I will be really pleased, and if he can carry on scoring goals and winning games I will be even happier."

"As professionals we know that we have to focus on our job. I will support Frank, and then he's really focused and we try to carry on performing on the pitch. That is the only way for us."
