Frank Lampard has told Antonio Rudiger that he must take on added leadership responsibilities at Chelsea this season, with the head coach convinced that the Germany centre back is ready to be a greater influence on his younger team-mates.

"He will have an important role," Lampard said.

Pushed further on Rudiger's leadership qualities, Lampard added: "Everyone talks about how young we are but I don’t want a young team for the sake of it.

"I know he has been important for the club and team since he has been here.
