Chelsea legend Frank Lampard was announced on Thursday as the new boss of the club having signed a three year deal with the club.
Some fans, ex-Chelsea players and pundits have criticised the club for the decision to appoint Lampard as Chelsea boss due to his lack of experience. Lampard has been in management for just one year, guiding Derby to the playoff finals.
As expected, during his unveiling to the media, he was asked about his lack of experience and how it could affect Chelsea.
Lampard responded: “I would say I thought about it a lot, it is an obvious question and I understand it. I have been one year in management and the Chelsea job doesn’t come around often.
“I think I am not to, I don’t want to go and start saying I am worried about this and that. In my playing career I have learnt from a lot of managers, and that stands me in good stead for now.
“I know a lot about this club and how it works and I have to realise that. I believe in myself. What defines me will be my work ethic.”
Lampard also added he would try to deliver for Chelsea.
He added: “I wouldn’t say I am apprehensive, I am a realist and will try to deliver for this club.”
