Frank Lampard Says Being Under Pressure is Exciting

Lampard, Football Express

Frank Lampard believes that the results will soon improve although there is some kind of pressure heaping on him.

The 42-year-old Chelsea manager has won just once in his last six matches and is facing a new under-pressure kind of experience at Stamford Bridge.

However, the tactician is “excited” about his journey as a manager even though the club could not win matches.

The Game’s On:

Frank Lampard came to Stamford Bridge as a manager leaving his duty previously assigned at Derby County. He has not got much experience in this profession of coaching and the various scenarios related to it.

In a big club like Chelsea, results do matter. Hence, the fans become frustrated and management may sack the coach if the results don’t improve.

However, with Lampard, the fans are loving what the manager is currently doing. He had promoted various youngsters to the starting 11 playing alongside and learning from the veterans.

Lampard was even responsible when the club was in great form undefeated for 17 consecutive matches. However, the coach likes everything to be a bit tricky!

“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.”

The former Blues midfielder is aware of the pressure heightening up and takes this as a challenge.

“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.”

Lampard should focus now on winning more matches

Lampard is currently rotating the squad in each and every match in the Premier League. New signings Kai Havertz and Timo Werner are losing their form whereas some players like Christian Pulisic are facing persistent injuries.

Lampard missed two times on his first-ever trophy as a manager. First, in the penalty shootout loss to Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup and then, lost to Arsenal in the FA Cup Final 2020. However, he might be looking to win his first-ever trophy at least this season.

He believes that now is the biggest chance to improve for them. However, the Pensioners have time to prepare for their big games, around five matches before the London derby against Tottenham Hotspur on 4th February.

Chelsea next face Morecambe in the FA Cup 3rd Round tomorrow evening and they should be quickly picking up the pace to be title contenders this season.
