Jose Mourinho and his Chelsea camp were handed an injury scare before the first game of their preseason tour to Asia. Talismanic midfielder Frank Lampard was told by his Portuguese boss to take it easy after he pulled up during the warm-up with a sore achilles tendon. The Blues have been granted a rest day in Kuala Lumpur before they play a Malaysia XI on Sunday.
Lampard signed a new one year contract extension at Stamford Bridge in May and is now looking to stay fit ahead of the news season with new manager Mourinho stating that he will be looking to utilize the skills and experience of his older players in the coming campaign.
