Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is under tremendous pressure to get things back on track after their recent slump but while talking to the press, the Blues legend claimed he was relishing the situation.
The Chelsea manager said during a press conference, as reported by ESPN: “In terms of myself, I have to say I came into this job expecting pressure and I have to say my own personality means that I’m weirdly quite strange.
“You probably have to be to do this job at times, but when things are going well, I put more pressure on myself.
“I don’t like things going well because I worry what’s around the corner, I worry about complacency. With the unbeaten run, I was constantly under pressure myself with people telling me how great we were.
“Now, I find this more challenging in a good way in terms of my job because I can find out more about myself, I can find out more about every member of the team, every member of the staff and it actually makes my job more exciting.
“Now, of course I understand the pressure heightens because I understand the expectations of a club like this but I love doing what I’m doing. I never expected an easy run in this job. I’ve come to a huge club in Premier League and world football in the process of a rebuild. That was never going to be an easy run. So I have to expect these situations.”
Various reports in England are suggesting that Roman Abramovich has already given the ultimatum to Frank Lampard and if he cannot get Chelsea back to winning ways soon enough then the club will start looking for a replacement.
We really don’t blame the management for putting pressure on the manager since they have spent heavily on new signings this summer but almost none of them have been influential so far.
Some say Chelsea are already in talks with people like Thomas Tuchel to replace Frank Lampard but we doubt if the hierarchy will want to part ways with him before the current season wraps up.
