QOTD: Frank Lampard on Cleanliness and Confidence

image

“I have never had a manager who, while I’m standing in the shower cleaning my balls, tells me I’m the best player in the world. He did that. I’ll never forget it. So casual.

‘You’re the best player in the world, but you need to win titles.‘  From that moment the extra confidence was in me.“

Frank Lampard talking about former manager Jose Mourinho.

thanks SJA!

    Frank Lampard is one of the greatest players who played for both Chelsea and the England national team. However, when he is out of his form, the club is planning to transfer him. I am disappointed to hear this transfer news.

    BTW Kickette, nice work on he ball highlighting picture…

  3. TammyV says:

    There is/used to be video on the Chelsea website of the first time they were presented with the Trophy after winning the league. It is all dressing room celebrations (naked Petr Cech and Paolo Ferrira, lots in towels) and then at the end JT brings trophy into the showers where Lamps is washing his balls…and then they dancing/ jumping around with the trophy.. It was literally both the funnist and most disturbing thing I had seen in a long time.

    Interviewing 101. Lesson #5 avoid phrases such as "cleaning my balls"

  7. aristeia says:

    That's an um, impressive story. Wow, Frank. Wow, TSO.

  8. Cheryl says:

    ohhh frankie…darling….i adore you but some things are better left unsaid….. this was one of those things……

  9. Lampsy72 says:

    Hahaha… Is this some kind of a joke? HAHA. Lampsy has been great at Chelsea but I have to say it kind of makes me laugh when I read the quote. Oh Jose… Miss that guy.

  10. solinalfc says:

    haha….^0^ i wish i was Jose.

  11. FootballerChick43 - says:

    Oh. My. God. *Falls over laughing*

  12. lose that girl says:

    Oh, okay! *looks puzzled* Whatever….

    lose that girl blog

  13. LoveLamps says:

    Love him. Love Jose. Love everything.

  14. jade says:

    wow love it!!! If i was to give frank a compliment do you think he woould let me see him naked in the shower!!!! LOL

  15. Miggy says:

    Naked compliments, eh? *shrugs* A tad creepy, but who am I to question Jose’s timing of compliments? For all I know that could be a part of his champion making routine.

  16. The Fourth Official says:

    Seriously, that's kinda weird. What straight man (never mind a manager) dishes compliments to a naked man in the shower? And sorry, Lampsy lovers, but Frank is not the best player in the world. EDIT: I just read the link, and Lampsy *doesn't* say he's the best. That pleases me.

  17. Berbie's Barbie says:

    I find it quite hard to believe that Frank really said that.Hahahahahah!

  18. Helle (Footiegirl) says:

    Hmmm…. Cleaning his balls, seriously? That's just weird and a bit scary too come to think of it….

  19. 'TorresNubianQu says:

    okay??!!

  20. Dani.Mrs José says:

    LOL

  21. Dreamgirl says:

    Well there you are Raffa. That's the answer.

  22. DC says:

    hahaha. win.one of the best quotes everrr!

  23. Baby Freya (Mrs Arbe says:

    Right………..:S

  24. Yasichelsea says:

    Jose is right! Frank is the bestttt!

  25. Venice says:

    Huh?? LMAO!

  26. carly says:

    ROTFL…that's the kind of quote that makes my day.

  27. Boston Red says:

    LMAO…

  28. Pau de Silva (aka Sa says:

    Ooh TammyV!!! I hadnt noticee!!!!!!!!!

  29. Pau de Silva (aka Sa says:

    jajajajaja when I visited Stamford Bridge a couple of years ago that was the first thing that came to my mind… those showers have zero privacy!!!!! "cleaning my balls".. do balls get too dirty during a game??? still I love you Frank!

  30. TammyV says:

    It was quality…I hate them for taking it down. It might be up there again but I never resubscribed to their service.

  31. Elise says:

    After a moment of wtf, I clicked on the link and there's an article with the quote in context, but it's still super funny. I do find, though, that I'm okay with pretty much any conversation that concerns Frank, Frank's balls, and/or Frank naked in the shower! *wonders to self if John was around, too! :P *

  32. LizB (Mrs. Vucinic) says:

    Er, ok. That’s a bit weird.

  33. eRe says:

    Pure Lampard. Frank Lampard. I guess I love this guy.

  34. mrscudicini says:

    Wow…that’s uhm…wow…and on a Monday… I’ve heard that story where Jose told Lamps that when he was in the shower and Lamps was all “Uh, could we discuss this when I’m NOT naked?” but the balls line is a new one on me…

  35. autumnmaple101 says:

    HAHA. Funny.

  36. Becca says:

    I wish i was Jose Mourihno, but i wouldnt be standing there watching if you get what im saying ;)

  37. AJ says:

    Hilarious! I read that article, and laughed out loud. Silver Spoon, privately educated, IQ higher than 99.9% of society and he brought the “washing balls”?? I cringed and then swung back around to a grin. Go on with your drool-inducing thighs, Frankie. I’d still do you, potty mouth or not. :D
