Valencia boss Celades’ huge mistake about Frank Lampard ahead of Champions League clash

Valencia manager Albert Celades, during the pre-match press conference for their Champions League clash with Chelsea, has been panned for mistaking Frank Lampard's managerial debut with Derby. According to Reuters journalist Richard Martin, Celades said: “He was a great player and then he did a very good job at Coventry.” Journalists took the quote at face value. Derby is 50 miles north of Coventry and the error is even more bizarre considering they are in different divisions. Celades added: "That season was a big opportunity to arrive to Chelsea, be at a big level in the Premier League and the Champions League. Chelsea is a big team, with big players and a big coach. Tomorrow will be a difficult game. Chelsea have very good players, not two or three, a lot of good players. "They play with big intensity and I think at the moment they are one of the best in Europe. They are playing very well. Watching the game against Manchester City you can understand the things they can do… we need to be at our best to beat Chelsea." Source- The Sun
