Chelsea manager Lampard highlights Kovacic after Bayern Munich thumping

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard says Mateo Kovacic can be happy with his performance in last night's Champions League thumping by Bayern Munich.

Lampard admitted that Bayern were simply too good for his young side on the night, but felt many of them could learn a lot from the assured performance of Kovacic.

"They need to understand the levels that the Champions League is when they get to the knockout stage," Lampard said.

"I thought there were a couple of performances in our team, namely Kovacic, who played with a personality and a quality that makes you go, 'okay, he can play in pretty much any team with that level.'

"Other than that we need to say tonight wasn't a night where we showed that, and that's on an individual to take responsibility."
