Frank Lampard has said he is unconcerned by sack rumors and wants more time at Chelsea.
“I’m not concerned on that point, I’ve been relaxed about whether we can have peaks and troughs, I’ve just spoken a lot after the game there about where I expected periods of difficulties this year,” he said.
“I said it when we beat Leeds and everyone was championing us to be title contenders, I know that it doesn’t come that easy, I know where we’re at, whether it puts pressure on me or not is regardless.”
“One month ago, everyone was asking me when I was going to sign a new contract and now people will be saying different things because in quick succession – over a tight, busy period – we’ve lost four games of football.”
“The pressure remains constant in this job, you know in tough moments that will be there, I didn’t get into this job being unaware of that.”
“My job is to keep working, my job is to try and lift the players – who would’ve felt that in the first-half, they would’ve felt the differences of City and their receiving of the ball, their individual ability to take the ball inside areas – we’re fighting to try and match those levels and I know it takes its time.”
