Jürgen Klopp slams Chelsea for sacking Frank Lampard
Klopp believes Lampard deserved more time to improve Chelsea’s results after a recent dip in form, which
has seen them fall to 10th in the Premier League – six points off the top four.
‘’That’s a really tough one, to be honest, I think that Chelsea did an incredible job in the transfer market
this summer and brought in good players and things like this need time, that’s completely normal,’
’‘’It’s really harsh to make a decision that early but obviously Mr Abramovich gives you some chances with
money, players, whatever but is not the most patient person in the world, obviously.’’
He also threw his weight behind Lampard and backed him to achieve success later where he would not be
weighed down by the success he achieved as a Chelsea player.
‘I really feel for Frank he’s a young, really talented manager so I wish him the best, he will be fine, I’m sure,
but it’s a hard one if it’s in your club and it was obviously Frank’s club.‘But maybe good now his story’s over
and he can go everywhere and be completely fresh and without any history.’
Frank Lampard recently parted ways with Chelsea after a poor run in the last month had seen the Blues slide
down the table.
