Chelsea manager Frank Lampard said midfielder Ross Barkley showed “a lack of professionalism” after he was pictured shirtless in a nightclub.
The incident took place during the international break and the 25-year-old has been left out of the club’s trip to Valencia in the Champions League.
Lampard said Barkley, who has been struggling with an ankle injury, must “show his reactions on the pitch”.
“I like Ross, he’s certainly one of my players. He has had an injury, he’s still kind of carrying an injury, there’s a bit of pain on shooting so he just has to work his way back in, in terms of the fitness thing, and train well,” said Lampard.
