Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has warned Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich that he needs time to build a dynasty similar to what Jurgen Klopp has done at Liverpool.
Klopp finished eighth in the Premier League in his first season in charge at Anfield in 2015/16, had two fourth-placed finishes before last year ending up runners up to Manchester City but winning the Champions League.
Lampard is under huge pressure at Chelsea as the Blues have won only two of our last eight games but he insists he needs time to build a winning team.
Lampard said: “The Liverpool journey is an incredible story. We have seen the journey of this team that is now an absolute machine – rolling everyone over.
“It can take time. Behind a team that wins is hard work from everyone – which is what I am trying to do at Chelsea.
“There is a plan that has run through Liverpool, which we’ll try to do here – understanding there will be tough times when I’ll be questioned, and we have to stay tough.
“Liverpool is a great model. What they have done is fantastic.”
