On-loan Liverpool FC midfielder sends message to Frank Lampard
On-loan Liverpool FC midfielder Harry Wilson underlines Chelsea FC boss Frank Lampard's influence on his career
Harry Wilson has underlined the influence Chelsea FC boss Frank Lampard on the Liverpool FC midfielder’s career.
The Wales international is currently on loan at Bournemouth from his parent club Liverpool FC in order to gain more first-team experience.
Wilson spent the 2018-19 season at Derby County under the management of Lampard, who led the Rams to the Championship play-off final.
The 22-year-old scored 18 times in 49 games in all competitions for Derby under Lampard before the Blues legend replaced Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge.
Although Wilson has worked with Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool FC since being included in their senior squad since 2015, the Welsh starlet has spoken about Lampard’s influence.
Bournemouth will make the trip to Chelsea FC in their next Premier League fixture in west London on Saturday afternoon.
And Wilson has opened up about the role that Lampard has played in his fledgling career so far.
“I owe Frank Lampard a lot,” Wilson told Sky Sports.
“He was fantastic for me last season, probably the most important one in my career so far, the one where I played regular football.
“To play under a legend like him, he taught me a lot. I’m in regular contact with him and it’s great to see him doing so well at Chelsea now.”
Wilson has scored six times in 12 games in the Premier League for Bournemouth in the current campaign after his loan move from Liverpool FC.
The Welsh star has only made one appearance for the Premier League leaders in his career so far, coming off the bench in their 1-0 win over Plymouth in the FA Cup third round in January 2017.
