Chelsea’s Frank Lampard, has maintained that he is “unconcerned” by speculations about his future at the club, and his only focus is on turning around their slump.
The Blues have now won only one of their last seven games in all competitions, losing 3-1 to Manchester City on Sunday.
Ilkay Gundogan, Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne all scored in the first half at Stamford Bridge to give the former champions complete control of the game.
Chelsea has now slipped to 8th place in the table, with reports appearing that the club is planning to fire it if the team’s poor performance continues.
When asked about the mounting pressure on him, Lampard said: “I’m not concerned on that point.
“I expected periods of difficulty this year. I said it when we beat Leeds and everyone was championing us to be title contenders. I know that it doesn’t come that easy, I know where we’re at.
“Whether it puts pressure on me is regardless. Because a month ago, everyone was asking when I would sign a new contract, and now people will be saying different things because over a tight, busy period, we’ve lost four games of football.”
