“I owe him a lot” Harry Wilson speaking about Frank Lampard

Liverpool on-loan star Harry Wilson took to the media to thank Chelsea manager Frank Lampard ahead of their reunion at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The 22-year-old winger played with Derby County last campaign when the Chelsea boss was a manager for the Championship side to help the club to the Play-off final.

Derby failed to gain promotion having lost to Aston Villa at the Wembley Stadium. The on-loan Liverpool star finished that season with a whopping 18 goals and created six assists in 50 appearances for the Rams in all competitions.

Now on loan at AFC Bournemouth, Wilson impressive run continues as he has already bagged six goals so far this season and he is very well prepared to face his former boss.

Speaking ahead of the Cherries clash with Chelsea on Saturday, Wilson said via Sky Sports: “I owe Frank Lampard a lot.

“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.”

The Welsh winger, who joined Liverpool at the age of eight, put pen to paper to sign a new five-year deal with the club back in 2018 after impressive loan spells at Hull City and Crewe.

Since becoming a professional football player, Wilson has only been able to register one appearance for Liverpool but he stands firm and strong on his dream to break into the first team of Jurgen Klopp at Anfield as he has done with Eddie Howe’s team.

Speaking about Bournemouth, he continued: “The lads want to finish higher than last season. I think they were a bit disappointed with the way their season finished.
