Lampard's message to Kovacic after the midfielder's goal in Chelsea draw

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard says one of his 'projects' is to get midfielder Mateo Kovacic to score more goals.

Kovacic was on target on Wednesday night as Chelsea settled for a 2-2 draw with Valencia in a Champions League encounter. The Croatian broke his Blues duck on his 71st club appearance as he leveled the scores when his side was trailing.  Kovacic ended a run of 145 appearances without a goal for club & country, dating back to Jan 2017 and Lampard has revealed his plans for the former Real Madrid midfielder. 

"We've had a lot of jokes between me and him, and the whole squad and him, because he's a player of such quality that should score more goals," said Lampard.

"It's a project for me, for him and for the whole staff to get him more goals, and he could have scored two. I'm delighted for him and I hope that's the start of something new."
