Lampard wants more English kids coming through at Chelsea

Frank Lampard has called on Chelsea to start bringing through more English youngsters.

"I don't want to sound controversial, but we have to work harder, in my opinion, at getting local boys from parts of England, where I grew up in Essex and up north," he told Chelsea TV.

"We need to work hard with the boys to make them want to come and be at Chelsea. I don't think we have to put lots of dollar signs in front of their faces. Sometimes I just think we have to get them in, work hard on them to make them develop.

"I'd love to see that and I think that's what sets some other academies apart and what they are doing better than us, to be honest."
