Frank Lampard is impressed for Fulham by the form of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and insists the midfielder has a future for Chelsea.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s form at Fulham has thus caught the eye of the manager of his parent club Chelsea.
On Saturday in October, Chelsea loanee Loftus-Cheek faces in the Premier League at Craven Cottage.
Lampard said: “He played well [against Tottenham] and I was really pleased to see that.
“I felt we missed Ruben last year. When he 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 him earlier on in the season were about him not feeling as sharp or as good as he wanted to be off the back of a really bad injury.
“So, it was a question of whether he could go and play games because he felt he would get regular game time elsewhere.
“Seeing him play recently, he is looking fit and fresh and strong. We know his obvious talents so it is great to see.
“If he can keep that up hopefully through the season, and get back to exactly where he was and more, then I will be very happy and he will come back as our player for sure.”
