Wolves boss Paul Lambert said he is proud of every one of his players, despite a 2-0 loss to Chelsea on Saturday.
The Wolves manager claimed that he didn’t mind getting beat by Chelsea, insisting he could not have asked for any more from his team, who put in an energetic performance against the Premier League leaders and certainly did enough to make their coach proud.
“Everyone should leave here with their head held high. I’ve proud of them, every one of them,” he said.
“I don’t mind getting beat, there’s a certain way of getting beat. I could not have asked for any more.
“We were well in the game for 70 minutes or so and might have had a goal. You are up against a tough side.”
Tough side is an understatement, with Chelsea at the very top of the Premier League mountain, and most fans favourite to clinch the title.
Lambert added: “I don’t know if we were unlucky but for an hour, 65 minutes, we were fantastic and in the game.
“We probably needed George’s shot to go in to give us something to hang onto. That is the only thing that was missing.
“I said it before to them. I have been in many a dressing room, I’ve played with world class players and Chelsea have that.
“For a team to stop them, its going to take something. But I’m proud of my team. We made this game what it was tonight. I thought we were fantastic.”
Asked about the Weimann penalty claim, Lambert replied: “I don’t know. I haven’t seen it. Would it have changed things? I don’t know.
“They are that good Chelsea they can score at any moment. They are dangerous when you have the ball because their counter-attack is so quick.
