Frank Lampard is a fan favourite at Stamford Bridge, and the Blues legend is seen as a hero and one of the greatest players to have played at the club.

Lampard has been appointed as the manager of Chelsea, and the club legend now has to set his own legacy as a manager.

Lampard has only been a manager for a year, leading Derby County last season, and he has never coached at the top level, drawing skepticims from all over the place. He’ll also be without star player Eden Hazard who has moved to Real Madrid, and the Blues can’t make signing for two transfer windows.

Chelsea defender David Luiz believes Chelsea fans will only be patient with Lampard for only six months and after that they will demand results.

“I think everyone understands the moment and everyone understands to be patient, but in the end everyone wants to win,” centre-back Luiz said, according to Football London.

“They are going to be patient in the first six months and then in the last six months [of the season] they want us to win.

“It is going to be like that, we have to think about that and do the best to make them happy.

“If you don’t think like that [about winning trophies], then you can’t play for Chelsea. The ambition has to be high. Of course, you have many, many fantastic clubs.

“They [other clubs] are working with the managers more than three or four years and they have amazing squads. On the pitch it is up to us to have to show our jobs.”
