Frank Lampard does not expect any favours from Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich.
He fully believes that his 18-month return to Stamford Bridge has justified not getting the sack now.
Keep in mind, Chelsea sit ninth in the table after winning just one league game out of their last five. Abramovich invested heavily in the summer market, allowing Lampard to spend in excess of £200m.
Lampard did show plenty of promise after guiding Chelsea to a Champions League spot with a fairly young squad. The Blues even had the chance to clinch some silverware but lost the FA Cup final narrowly to Arsenal 2-1.
Recent reports indicate that the Russian might axe Lampard despite the latter being a club legend. When questioned about his relationship with Abramovich, Lampard said, “It is his prerogative.
“When he came to Chelsea, it made my career because maybe I would have gone on elsewhere, or whatever would have happened in my personal career. But fortunately, I was at a club that had an owner that changed the face of it and changed my life.
“But I don’t think that should give me any head start and the job I did last year, in one year, to get us to fourth was a huge positive because of the constraints. After that, now I need to go again.”
