Performances and results will define how long I am at Chelsea

Written by on August 18, 2019

Frank Lampard, after two competitive games as Chelsea boss, has acknowledged that “performances and results will define how long I am here”.

The former favourite has returned to familiar surroundings in difficult circumstances.

Lampard has just one year of coaching experience at Derby under his belt, but has now taken on a Premier League challenge at Stamford Bridge.

Lampard is aware of the pressure he is now operating under, but retains full belief in the ability of both himself and those at his disposal to deliver positive displays.

The Blues legend told Sky Sports: “Performances and results will define how long I am here.

“It is very easy to be negative after losing 4-0 but there were a lot of good signs during the game against Manchester United.

“As for the performance against Liverpool, I think we were the better team against one of the best teams in the world and probably deserved to win on general play. This is something we should be proud of.

“We need to use that. Hopefully, it will give us confidence about what’s ahead. What I have felt in the six weeks that I have been here is that the players are a good group and they have a lot of spirit. We saw that against Liverpool in the dressing room and on the pitch. That is what you want to see as a manager because it gives you the chance to work.”
