Frank Lampard says he and Chelsea captain John Terry will make sure new gaffer Guus Hiddink has the full support of the players.

Lampard told The Sun: “JT is the captain and I am vice-captain. I hope the fans sense that we hurt like they do and we take responsibility for trying to put things right.

“When we are not top of the league or a few points off it we will try and get everyone going and put that right because that’s our nature.

“Hiddink is obviously a top manager and he’s had great success with club sides and international sides.

“He is very technical and seems to like a typically Dutch method of playing football — so it will be interesting to work with him.

“I have huge respect for Phil Scolari and Jose Mourinho and I have been very lucky that I have had huge respect for every manager I have worked with.

“It will be the same with Hiddink but the players need to respect the manager and perform for him.”
