Yuvraj Singh Reacts To Kevin Pietersen Lashing Out At Media For Frank Lampard Criticism
Premier League: Currently facing the brunt of criticism due to Chelsea's poor form, Frank Lampard received some much-needed support from Kevin Pietersen on Twitter.
- Kevin Pietersen rallied to support under-pressure Frank Lampard
- He compared Chelsea to Manchester United
- Yuvraj Singh also gave his take on the situation
Having won only once in their last five Premier League fixtures, it is natural for Chlesea and head coach Frank Lampard to face some heat from pundits and fans. The former midfielder has, however, found support in England cricketer Kevin Pietersen - a Chelsea fan. In a series of tweets, Pietersen lashed out at the media for the treatment meted out to Lampard following Chelsea's recent travails. The ex-England cricketer wrote that even Manchester United were in a similar position, a few months ago, but are now top of the league table. Yuvraj Singh, who is a Manchester United fan, first trolled Pietersen before lending his support.

2011 Cricket World Cup winner Yuvraj had the perfect take on Lampard's current situation. He wrote, "It's a long season ! table will keep changing bud ! As sportsmen we all know who criticism works when your on top your a hero when your at the bottom your a villain we just learn to take it in our stride and move forward".
Exactly right! Tough at the top!— Kevin Pietersen (@KP24) January 22, 2021
Yuvraj's statement impressed fans on social media, and Pietersen too agreed with it. Pietersen tweeted, "Exactly right! Tough at the top!"
Pietersen's support will be of little solace for Lampard, who really needs to take Chelsea back to winning ways.
