“Give me more playing time or I leave” – Chelsea midfielder tells Frank Lampard

Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour has vowed to continue to work hard to impress Frank Lampard but admits he needs more game time with the first team or he may leave Chelsea on loan this January.

Speaking in an interview before Chelsea FC’s clash with Morecambe in the FA Cup on Sunday, Gilmour said: “I’ve enjoyed my own pathway.

“Of course, I need to get more first team experience but I’m still young, I’m still learning and there’s plenty of time for that.

“I just work hard every day in training and try to take my opportunities. I love being around the boys, I love training with team and I love working with the gaffer so hopefully that just continues.” but i need more playing time. he said!
