Under-fire Chelsea supervisor Frank Lampard mentioned on Friday he would ignore media hypothesis over different managers being linked along with his job.
After a promising begin to the Premier League season, Chelsea have slipped from third to eighth within the standings following two wins and 5 defeats of their final eight video games to sit down 11 factors behind league leaders Manchester United.
Lampard has been below the microscope after the membership spent greater than 200 million kilos ($272.90 million) to rebuild the squad within the close-season however the former Chelsea midfielder and their report scorer mentioned the hypothesis about his future was solely on social media.
“I don’t listen to it (speculation), it is only everywhere if you want to scroll through social media,” Lampard informed reporters forward of Sunday’s FA Cup fourth-round tie towards second-tier Luton Town.
“I don’t do that, I’m not stupid. I know what pressure comes with managing a top football club but the talk doesn’t matter to me.”
When pressed on whether or not he had any conversations with the membership’s board, Lampard mentioned: “I don’t want to talk about private conversations. The situation changes when you are a manager, you have a lot more conversations with the hierarchy.”
Lampard mentioned the membership’s new recruits, akin to Timo Werner who has not scored in 11 league video games, want time to adapt to the Premier League’s depth.
“I think that some of the new lads have been quoted as saying that,” he added. “When I speak about gamers needing adaptation and time, then it’s very regular.
“My concern shouldn’t be the strain on me, I perceive the way it goes. The strain must be optimistic on the gamers. I don’t thoughts taking it. The gamers need to get some kind again.”
