Did Lampard make Premier League mistake with this OFFICIAL Chelsea transfer decision?
Has Frank Lampard make a mistake allowing Tariq Lamptey to leave the club like Alan Hudson has claimed?
Lamptey was one of the most exciting talents at the club and impressed in his outings last season for Chelsea., but after learning that he would not be guaranteed regular football at the club, he decided to depart the club for a move to Brighton.
The diminutive defender has been thriving and impressing in the premier League this season, with his pace and positioning allowing him to impact proceedings at both ends of the field.
His performances have even led to speculation that Bayern Munich are keeping a close eye on his development ahead of the January window, and Hudson believes those qualities should have been embraced in west London, with Chelsea considered to have made a questionable decision that they may live to regret.
“I look at the young lad Lamptey they sold to Brighton, who has impressed me hugely,” Hudson told CaughtOffside.
“I would have kept him as he is most definitely one for the future.
“He has been outstanding at Brighton since lockdown. He’s quick at turning defence into attack, which is something Chelsea lack – real pace with quality at the end of it.
“I think Frank Lampard got this one wrong.”
