Fikayo Tomori: Chelsea youngsters never heard from previous managers

Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori has lifted the lid on the management of Frank Lampard.

Tomori also played for Lampard on-loan with Derby County.

He believes Lampard is having success because has bothered to keep tabs on Chelsea's youngsters, which has enabled him to build a strong level of trust with them - unlike managers who have gone before.

Tomori told The Sun: "It was difficult to have much personal contact with the previous managers.

"But now we have a manager who knows the youth-team players and understands what it takes to be here at Chelsea."
