According to Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard deserves to be given more time by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.
Lampard has come under pressure lately after a run of four defeats in the last six Premier League matches for the Blues.
Ferdinand believes the pressure on Lampard is not called for and wants Abramovich to give Lampard more time to turn things around.
“The bigger picture for Frank is that he’s looking for performances and he’s looking for results,” Ferdinand said on his YouTube channel.
“It’s been a bit of a sticky time for Chelsea of late, he’s come under a bit of scrutiny, people shouting him out in the media.
“I don’t think it’s been called for to be honest with you.
“I think he’s got a whole new squad almost, big players have come in, that takes time.
“I think he deserves that time, he did well last year given they had no transfer window.
“He would have liked to have rested players [against Morecambe] but he saw this as an opportunity for some players who were struggling for a bit of form to get some form back and some confidence.”
