Lampard confirm Fulham loanee Loftus-Cheek still have future at Chelsea

Lampard says that he was really pleased with Loftus-Cheek's performance against Tottenham and reveals that the midfielder has the attributes needed for Chelsea.

Lampard feels that going somewhere and playing games will really help the 24-year-old.

Lampard states that he'll be more than happy to see Loftus-Cheek return and play for the Blues.

"He played well [against Tottenham] and I was really pleased to see that because when Ruben was getting fit and was with us, I felt like we missed him last year," Frank Lampard told reporters.

"And when Ruben was getting fit, I was excited because I know the attributes he has and I wanted those attributes at the club.

"The conversations I had with Ruben earlier in the season were that he wasn’t feeling as sharp as he wanted to be on the back of a really bad injury which he had (a ruptured Achilles tendon suffered in May 2019).

"Could he go and play games because he felt he needed games and maybe he could get regular games elsewhere.

"Seeing him play recently, I see him looking fit, fresh and strong. We know he’s an obvious talent so it’s great. If he can keep that up hopefully through the season and if he can get back to where he was and more then I’ll be very happy and he’ll come back as our player, for sure."

Ruben Loftus-Cheek spent most of last season recovering from the Achilles injury, making only a handful of appearances for Frank Lampard.

His loan move to Fulham, however, is already proving fruitful as the midfielder has made 11 appearances for the club this season.

Loftus-Cheek, however, will not play against Chelsea this weekend as part of his loan agreement.
