Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has admitted he doesn’t think that his status as a legend at the club, will afford him more time than any other previous manager.
A recent poor run of form has seen the Blues earn just one win in their last six games.
It has led to speculation that Lampard could be sacked.
Lampard knows that owner Roman Abramovich could fire him at any point, having seen him ruthlessly remove managers while a player at the club for 13 years.
“All I want to concentrate on is the job in hand, I can’t control everything and I certainly don’t want to rely on what’s happened in the past,” Lampard told the media ahead of Sunday’s FA Cup tie against Morecambe, when asked whether he would get more time than other coaches before him.
“What I see right now in terms of the position of the club, a month ago everything was rosy. Now everything – and very quickly – is negative. I have to look positively and things I can’t control outside of that I feel are a waste of time.
“I have felt huge support from this club in the period I’ve been back as a manager. As a player, I felt huge support for 13 years and, in the end, I left the club because they wanted to move onto other things.
“I understand what football is. I understand the demands and expectations. So I don’t think I have earned the right for anything that takes me out of that situation. All I can do is be honest with how I see things.
“I understand there is work to be done here and the position we are in. The young players had a tough year last year and with the new players coming in this year who are expected to produce at a young age immediately, there are going to be challenges.”
