Jose Maria Gimenez released some unexpected statements in the last hours that had a great impact on England. In the program Cambio de Banda, in which he participated with his teammates Santiago Arias and Héctor Herrera, the Uruguayan assured that as a boy he was a fan of Chelsea and that his idol was Frank Lampard, the current manager of the Blues.

“As a child I liked Fran Lampard a lot, in Uruguay they played the Premier League very early and I always saw her, I loved how he played. I would have liked to be able to play with him, I loved that Chelsea,” said the Atlético de Madrid defender.

Likewise, Giménez himself downplayed these statements. “When you’re a boy you always have idols, Paolo Montero, it was also because he was captain of Uruguay. Cannavaro was the Ballon d’Or and one day I ran into him and I was ashamed to ask him for a photo. You learn something from all the players in the world “, he indicated.
