Chelsea’s Players Growing Increasingly Dejected With Frank Lampard As Squad Voices Concerns Over The Tactics: A section of Chelsea’s squad is discontent with the style of football Lampard has deployed
Sitting on a bed of embers at the moment, Frank Lampard finds himself in a pickle. Chelsea’s horrendous slump in form across the last couple of months has seen Lampard find himself in a precarious situation.
The real troubles have started mounted for Lampard after Chelsea were humiliated and decimated against Manchester City at the weekend. Thoroughly outshone in every facet of the game, Chelsea slipped to 9th in the points tally as they failed to record a win for the 5th time in their last 6 matches.
There’s certainly smoke to the fire of Lampard being close to an exit if things don’t change in his favour in the upcoming month.
Chelsea Board on Frank Lampard
And Fabrizio Romano tweeted after Chelsea’s defeat: “Chelsea board always backing Frank in the last weeks – today they’re really disappointed by the performance against Man City #CFC.”
However, a larger problem which has emerged for Lampard is the increasing discontent amongst members of his squad. As per reports coming in, there is a section of the unit which has been left dismayed with the tactics Lampard has deployed at the club.
Along with that, players who have been left wanting of appearances on the pitch have been quick to voice their displeasure. Lampard’s inability to yet nail down on his best 11 hasn’t helped him cause either with the manager being lambasted for an ability to get the best out of Kai Havertz and Timo Werner.
A member of Chelsea’s unit told Caught Offside that the club was left flummoxed at Lampard’s decision to substitute Olivier Giroud and bring on Tammy Abraham during the side’s match against Southampton.
Despite the incessant rumour of Chelsea growing out of patience with Lampard, the manager looks to be assured of atleast getting the next month at the club. His showing last season paired with his status as a club favourite have worked in his favour with Roman and Marina both willing to give Lampard leeway currently.
Thomas Tuchel, Massimiliano Allegri and Brendan Rodgers have all emerged as contenders for the job meanwhile with the club set to be keeping an eye on the three in case things don’t work out for Lampard.
