Frank Lampard responds to criticism of his performance as Chelsea manager
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has hit back at his criticisms, insisting that it is easy to criticize people and that he remains “very confident” in what he does at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have only won one of their last six Premier League games and have therefore slipped into the middle of the table. Lampard benefited from the doubt in a difficult first season, but a summer spend of over £ 200million on a worse comeback has doubts that beg him if he is fit for the job.
Lampard landed on his feet by securing the Chelsea job in 2019, with just one year of management experience in Derby County under his belt. This role with Derby came barely 15 months after his retirement.
He insists he knows what he’s doing, but Chelsea fans are seriously divided.
“I could have been an expert, commenting on what everyone does in hindsight, when I want to, and I don’t want to do that,” Lampard said as quoted by the Daily Mail.
“I’m very confident in what I’m doing, whether people think I’ve been a manager for two and a half years, or whatever. I have been playing football since I can walk. I have been playing professionally for about 20 years, ”said the 42-year-old.
“I want to win games. I don’t like to lose parts. Monday I was disappointed because we lost against a team [Manchester City on Sunday] it was better than us that day. On Tuesday I woke up determined to get better and win our next game. This is how I see it.
Lampard has the lowest points-per-game average of any Chelsea manager, including interim, during Roman Abramovich’s time, which makes him worse than Andre Villas-Boas, Roberto Di Matteo and Maurizio Sarri – all the coaches of the Blues hierarchy finally sacked.
