I am not a Chelsea fan, but my most sincere sympathy goes to Frank Lampard. He missed the previous Chelsea game to be with his mum who was down with acute pnuemonia, she later died yesterday, thursday 24th April, at age 58.
He will miss tomorrow's game against Manchester United and it is not certain if he will play in the second-leg final of the champions league game next wednesday.
A statement from Chelsea read: "The club will be offering all the support it can to Frank and his family at this time. Everybody at Chelsea Football Club is absolutely devastated to hear the tragic news of the passing away of Pat Lampard, Frank's mother".
"Our sincerest and deepest condolences go out to Frank, his father Frank senior, sisters Natalie and Claire, and to their immediate family and friends."
May her soul rest in peace.
