Chelsea ace Lampard hits back at Man Utd legend Keane over AVB blast

Chelsea ace Frank Lampard has hit back at Manchester United legend Roy Keane. Keane claimed last Sunday there was a falseness in how Chelsea try to show they are all together when they are not.

Lamps hit back in the Sunday Sun: "I've loads of respect for Roy but he's wrong. That spirit has always been one of the things which is special about Chelsea.

"When something gets on Roy's nerves, he has a rant about it. But I like that. It shows he's passionate about the game, just as he was when he was a player."

Keane questioned whether the Chelsea team would be mucking around and playfully flicking each other's ears after the Napoli match, because he expected them to go out.

Lampard noted: "We were doing a lot more than just flicking each other's ears after such an amazing night.

"When our backs were against the wall, we responded. I don't think there's anything false about that."
