Former Chelsea defender William Gallas reckons Frank Lampard’s “position is in danger” unless he comes up with a “solution” fast.
The Blues have only mustered four points from a possible 18 in the Premier League over the last six matches, having looked like possible title contenders earlier on in the season.
The pressure is even greater on Lampard as he was allowed to splurge over £200m on signings over the summer in a huge recruitment drive.
And Gallas reckons Lampard is now in a “dangerous position” at Stamford Bridge with a top-three finish required.
Gallas told PlayOJO: “I think Lampard’s position is in danger. He’s not in a good position right now as they’re not in the top three at the moment.
“They spent a lot of money so the board want to see Chelsea winning the Premier League. I thought this season that they had a great chance to win it, but at the moment I’m sure the board aren’t happy with the results which is why I’m sure Frank is in a dangerous position. He needs to try and finish in the top three or win the Premier League.”
Gallas added: “When you spend almost £250m on players, that means you want to win the Premier League and the moment Chelsea’s position isn’t good. They’re not performing against the big clubs.
“The pressure is on Frank and he needs to find the solution very quickly because as we know, when you are the manager of Chelsea you can be sacked very quickly. The pressure is on him and he has to find the right system.
“They bought Werner for a lot of money, which is why perhaps Frank is playing him in every game, but if the player isn’t showing the quality, maybe they have to change the players in the team.
“I hope Frank finds the solution as soon as possible because he’s a young manager, but I’m sure he will be a great manager in the future. He’s very passionate and he knows football very well.”
