Lampard hails 'Guus effect'

Monday, February 23, 2009

New Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink has certainly made the right impression on Frank Lampard.

Hiddink started his regime with Chelsea on the right footing with an impressive 1-0 victory over Aston Villa side that had previously not lost for 13 Premier League matches.

And Lampard believes the Dutchman possesses all the right attributes to get the Blues back on track for the remainder of the season.

"I'd never met him before working with him this past week, so it was interesting to see he is a very serious guy," noted Lampard.

"It's important we have someone like that to help us move forward, but he also has a sense of humour, he relates to players, and I've been very impressed with what I've seen of him.

"In watching his Russian teams recently, they are technically very good, with a lot of movement and passing.

"In training we've worked very hard this week on passing the ball quickly, moving it, being organised, something we really needed.

"I just see him as a very good coach.

"He has a certain aura about him, something that top managers and coaches have, certainly the best ones I've worked with have that.

"They have a sense of fear about them, and when they say even the smallest thing, it makes you realise things on the pitch. He's got that.

"He doesn't say too much, but when he says something, it really matters."
