Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has acknowledged he is feeling the heat in the Chelsea hot seat after the 3-1 defeat to Manchester City on Sunday at Stamford Bridge.
Following the defeat to Manchester City, Lampard insists he won’t speak for the Chelsea board amid reports he could be sacked.
Lampard said: “I always feel heat. There is a lot of youth and new players in the team.
“That is not easy. I’m not going to speak for the people on the board or what they are thinking. That would be too much of a distraction. I can only speak as the manager of the club.
“We have character. We have 17 games unbeaten. A month ago people are asking where is this going to go, when are you signing a new contract. Now they’re saying the opposite.
“I’ll be the first to look at myself today but I know where we’re at and I know what it takes to churn out the level that City were at today. It’s normal that we take knocks but now is a test.”
