Lampard Reacts To Sack Rumours After Leicester Defeat

Chelsea Coach, Frank Lampard has revealed that he can handle the pressure after losing 2-0 to Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

The Blues produced another below-par performance to allow Leicester City go top of the log.

Fans have called for the sacking of Frank Lampard and according to reports in England, Chelsea is looking at appointing an experienced coach to arrest the slump.

“I understand it, the expectations of this club whether I think it is right or wrong, we are not in the position as Chelsea Football Club as we were in the periods when we were winning leagues”.

“The squad consistency is not the same, the level, the robustness of players who’ve won leagues is not the same. The ability of players that can get you results, at the top end of the pitch in a tight game, is not quite there. It is a developing team”.

“I can’t get caught up in what the reaction will be or I will be sitting there all day concerned about it”.

“I took this job knowing there would be difficult times because it is not a club ready to compete”.

‘Where everything was rosy in mid-December, it is not so now. We are not the only team to suffer that situation and I am not the only manager to be put under this sort of pressure”.

“The lucky thing for me is I’m good at handling that pressure. I don’t like it, I want to win games and people are talking about us towards the top of the league like we were a month ago, but the reality is I could sense these periods would come and that’s all I have to concern myself with”.

Leicester City are now a point ahead of Manchester United while Chelsea are in eighth five points adrift of Champions League places.
