Bit of a fluffy on the Official Site today, Frank Lampard has said that he doesn’t think David Silva needs any advice when it comes to finding the back of the net.

With Lampard’s own career, goals and over 800 appearances well known, he described Silva has more than capable of mixing it with the considered greats in the game, and given Silva already has his best goals to games ratio this campaign of is career, Lampard explained he didn’t feel that he needed any advice to improve his game further or keep that goalscoring going.

‘I don`t think I need to offer David any advice. Watching him play from the outside, I`d always had a huge admiration for him as an all-round player. Maybe he`s just took it upon himself to get in more scoring positions this season or taken more responsibility, but he doesn`t ask my advice and it`s not as if he ever needs to -but it`s great to see him chipping in.’

Lampard goes on to say that obviously scoring brings an inner confidence in players and when you are in good form in front of goal you feel like everything will go in, so often that helps you stay in the moment where more does go in, than go wide and in many ways he feels that the mental place that Silva has got himself in this season.

‘Scoring goals brings confidence in itself and when the goals start going in you get the bug for it.’

With Lampard’s experience in the game now and given the players he’s played alongside and against at all levels of the game, he goes on to say.

‘I`d put him right in the top bracket of the best players I`ve played with in my career. I`ve been fortunate enough to play alongside players like Gianfranco Zola, Arjen Robben and Eden Hazard among others and he`s completely up there with the best. From the moment I arrived and started training with him in pre-season I could better appreciate his weight of pass, movement, and his touch and he could play in any team in the world.’

It’s not just his playing talent that Lampard says he’s been impressed with, he also describes him as being one of the ‘most humble’ people he’s come across in football and for a ‘top player’ Lampard comments how ‘refreshing’ that is to see.

‘To be at the top of your game, have all the medals he has and do what he does week in, week out and yet it`s still like he`s just coming in, doing his day job and going home.’
