We’ve seen managers blame their players often for the mistakes they made, but Chelsea boss Frank Lampard who played at the top for many years and won many trophies, has revealed that he’s not too keen on blaming players.

Lampard who is in his third year as a manager, has revealed that he has matured even more since his playing career was over, and he tends to take more responsibility as the manager.

Lampard’s new found mentality as a club boss, is not to put the blame on anyone but rather take the pressure on himself.

“One thing I’ve seen in football, from being a young man trying to make it playing to now managing, is a kind of blame culture. I hear it a lot,” Lampard told Chelsea TV.

“Part of the way I am is that I never want to look at things that way.

“As a player it was very easy to look at it and say it was the back-four’s fault or I’ll blame the strikers because they didn’t finish my chances.

“But generally I’m always looking at myself. I was always my own biggest critic. On the pitch and off the pitch, I of course made loads of mistakes, but if you want to get better you have to take responsibility.”
