Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has hit back at his critics, rejecting the idea he lacks experience.

Chelsea have struggled for form, winning only once in their last six games and Lampard is under pressure.

Some critics have claimed Chelsea are struggling due to Lampard’s inexperience but Lampard doesn’t agree and responded by dismissing television punditry as an easy alternative to coaching or management.

Lampard said: “If I didn’t want that challenge I could have sat on the telly and done an easier job.

“I could have been a pundit, commenting on what everyone does with hindsight, whenever I want, and I don’t want to do that.

“I’m very confident in what I do, whether people think I’ve been a manager for two-and-a-half years, or whatever. I’ve been playing football since I could walk. I’ve been playing professionally for 20-odd years.

“I want to win games. I don’t like losing games. On Monday, I was disappointed because we lost to a team that was better than us on the day. On Tuesday, I woke up determined to get better and win our next game. That’s the way I see it.”
