The new Blues boss is confident he has enough talent in the squad, as he wishes to bring success to the UEFA Europa League champions.

English Premier League side Chelsea were hit by a transfer embargo for two consecutive transfer windows.

FIFA found them guilty of breaching regulations regarding the signing of U18 footballers.

Which is why manager Frank Lampard will not have new players but Christian Pulisic to strengthened the squad.

“I watched a lot of Chelsea last year under Maurizio Sarri,” he said according to Goal.

“In terms of the way that the season finished, to win the Europa League and secure Champions League football, it was a successful season. But for me, the story is not to look backward.”

“I know the club very well, I know the players very well. I have my own way that I want to work with the players, and I have to say in one week that we have been training I have been very happy with the attitude and the quality of the players,” he added.

“My job now is to work hard in pre-season with them.”

The boss explained: “I like my teams to play with a lot of energy and speed, with and without the ball, so I want to win it back as quickly as we can.”

“When we have the ball, I want to move the ball quickly and create chances and win games and feel like we are playing football that we enjoy. So, that is my job now.”

Lampard concluded: “I think I have inherited very good players. We can’t bring any players in this year, we know that, but I don’t need new players.”

“I am very happy with the squad and determined for us to be successful.”
