Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has acknowledged Chelsea can expect more “pain”
Chelsea are in a downward spiral after suffering 4 defeats in the last 6 Premier League matches. However under-fire Frank Lampard insists Chelsea can expect more pain in his rebuild at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea boss admitted to feeling the “heat” in the middle of a poor run of results. Speaking after a disappointing 3-1 loss to Man City, Frank Lampard said:-
“Any build or rebuild takes pain; pain behind the scenes and pain on the pitch occasionally.
“This is a difficult period and I understand the reasons why. Today the first half showed me the reasons why and we have to keep fighting and I’m the first one who has to keep fighting.– Frank Lampard
At the start of December after an impressive 3-1 win over Leeds United, Chelsea were on a 16 games unbeaten run and on top of the table. However, fast forward 4 weeks, Chelsea now finds themselves in the eight spot.
“At the minute, we are in a tough period, I Understand it as I played here for a long time, I understand the minute that you lose a few games in a short period of time then everyone looks and asks questions.
Then everyone looks at it differently and says you spent that much money. Well, the reality is that a lot of the players who came in are young, new, have been injured, not played together before.– Frank Lampard
While Lampard is adamant he is at the start of a rebuilding process. But after a transfer window of nearly £220 million, expectations have risen. Especially at a club like Chelsea, where owner Roman Abrahmovic demands the best.
