Chelsea boss Benitez insists Lampard issues not affecting morale

Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez insists Frank Lampard's future isn't unsettling the locker room.

Benitez insisted the uncertainty over Lampard's future - and Terry's very public backing of the midfielder - will not unsettle the dressing room ahead of the FA Cup tie against Southampton.

The Spaniard said: "Nobody was talking about this, we were just concentrating on the job [during yesterday's training session].

"They will have their feelings but also, at the same time, they will manage the situation as professionals on the pitch.

"I didn't know [about the message]. I was surprised when they told me but that's it. We know that we have to manage the situations as they are coming."
