Chelsea star Willian has urged the Chelsea board to be more like Manchester City and Liverpool and have patience with Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.
Since joining Chelsea in 2013, Willian has worked under five different managers at Stamford Bridge.
He wants the board to be patient with Lampard just like Manchester City and Liverpool have done with Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp respectively.
“Lampard was one of the best players at Chelsea and one of the best players in Europe,” Willian said, according to Sky Sports.
“The fans love him and he knows the club very well. I think now it’s time to give more time to him. I’ve been at Chelsea six years and I’ve had five different managers already!
“Maybe now it’s time to give more time like Man City do, like Liverpool do, three or four years. That could be very important.”
Lampard picked up his second victory as Chelsea boss on Saturday, beating Wolves 5-2 at the Molineux.
Willian’s Chelsea contract will expire at the end of the season and the Brazilian would love to extend his contract with the club beyond the summer.
He said: “From my side, I want to stay here. I know I only have one year left but I feel good playing for Chelsea.
“I like playing for Chelsea. I have the affection with everybody, the fans, the people that work at the club.
“Maybe this will be at the end of the season. Now is not the time to think about it. I just want to play my football and to help the team this season.”
