Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been warned that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will demand results and trophies after backing him in the transfer market.
Chelsea have signed Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Malang Sarr and Thiago Silva this summer and the Blues are also close to signing Kai Havertz of Bayer Leverkusen.
Speaking on the Transfer Talk podcast, Sky Sports’ transfer expert Dharmesh Sheth said: “Chelsea are going for it – absolutely incredible. What Roman Abramovich has done, people have called it a ‘reinvigoration’ of his spending and his love affair with Chelsea being rekindled.
“Frank Lampard’s had his free hit. He got the Champions League place Abramovich would have wanted as a minimum so that’s done. But with these signings, it’s a different scenario now at Chelsea and make no mistake – Abramovich is going to want to see results and trophies.
“He’s sacked managers before for doing better than Lampard did last season. He’s sacked Jose Mourinho twice, Carlo Ancelotti did the double in 2010 but finished second in the league and got sacked, so I think Lampard is well aware that Abramovich is going to want to see results.”
