Danny Drinkwater Deletes And Apologises For Instagram Post After Frank Lampard's Sacking

Danny Drinkwater Deletes And Apologises For Instagram Post After Frank Lampard's Sacking

Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater has apologised for sharing an image of himself celebrating - just hours after news of Frank Lampard's sacking emerged.

Drinkwater, who is currently on loan at Turkish side Kasimpasa, posted a picture of himself doing a knee slide just before the news was confirmed.

The former England international didn't feature in Lampard's plans and was loaned out three times under his management.


However, he swiftly removed the post and re-uploaded it with a message of support for Lampard.

"Thought that was a bit of a strange reaction," he begun.

"Didn't hear about the news before I posted that. I was just missing playing. The manager [Lampard] was someone I looked up to hugely as a player."

Drinkwater hasn't played in the Chelsea first-team since August 2018 and doesn't look to have a future at Stamford Bridge.

He was originally brought down by Devine with a horrific challenge that left him on the floor.

Devine then attempted to run away with the ball to continue the game, which was locked at 2-2, but Drinkwater had other ideas.

He kicked out at the 16-year-old and it sparked unsavoury scenes between both sets of players.

Speaking to the Telegraph in September, Drinkwater discussed his time in London openly and explained: "I know my Chelsea move hasn't worked out how anybody would have wanted and I've made mistakes, but it's not as simple as me just not playing football or picking up a wage.

"Money doesn't solve anything. The pay cheque doesn't really help at all, you don't even think about money.

"There have been things that come above football that have not been as simple as I'd like.

"I'm not looking for sympathy, f**k me I don't want that, but I suppose I'd just like people to understand it's not all gravy when you earn so much money and that I do care."
