This Real Madrid star has similar characteristics to Frank Lampard – Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti believes Federico Valverde is the Real Madrid player whose style of play is similar to Chelsea interim boss Frank Lampard.

“Lampard was a great player, a modern midfielder,” Ancelotti told Sky Sport Italia.

“He scored many goals because he had a unique ability to find space in the box with his late runs. An exemplary professional. I have great memories of him. He was a key player in my two years at Chelsea.”

“So, who is the most similar player in the current Real Madrid squad?

“It’s hard, but Valverde is another box-to-box player with similar characteristics,” argued Ancelotti.

“However, it also depends on what a coach demands, and I am not asking him to do the same things as Lampard.”
