“The manager here has got a great history in the game so I’m learning from him" says Trevoh
Trevoh Chalobah says it has been an education for him from day one at Portman Road.
The 19-year-old midfielder joined Blues on a season long loan from Chelsea in the summer and speaking in an interview in tonight’s matchday programme he said: “Obviously I’m disappointed with the way the results have gone for the team but for me, it’s been a big learning curve.
“I have played a lot of games, maybe more than I expected. Everything that has happened here this season has been new to me.
“I have seen how managers leave clubs from watching on TV and all that, now I have experienced that firsthand and how that affects players.
“The manager here now [Paul Lambert] has got a great history in the game so I’m learning from him. I’ve been learning about the game from the first day I arrived here.”
Trevoh is in the squad for tonight’s game against Derby and will come up against Frank Lampard, who he worked under at Chelsea.
“I didn’t train with him. He came back to the club and coached us,” explained the England U20 international.
“He was doing his badges and took a few sessions. It was great to have the opportunity to learn from a legend like him.”

A crowd of more than 18,000 is expected tonight so supporters are advised to leave extra time to get into the stadium than maybe normal for a midweek game.
