The Chelsea boss is afraid of losing his job amid a poor run of form at Chelsea.
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard admits he is worried about Chelsea’s form and ex-Chelsea striker Shevchenko is among the favourites to replace him at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues are sitting at 8th place after 19 games and have lost five of their last eight Premier League outings.
That is not the kind of form you expect out of an apparent title-contender.
“I am worried about the slump,” Lampard said after the 2-0 loss to Leicester City yesterday. “from the form we were in to get so quickly into the form we’re now… five losses in eight isn’t where we want to be.
“We were in a really good place in December, second in the league and two points from the top. Maybe complacency set in. There’s only one way out of it which is hard work.
“It is clearly concerning. It is a period we are not happy with, other clubs have been in that period. All we can think about is getting through the period, working hard. The important thing is the players bounce back. This is the cut-throat nature of what it is.”
