Tony Cascarino believes Frank Lampard is at the risk of losing his job.
is under pressure as he invested £220 million to bring in new players during the summer transfer window.
Although he spent big money on Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Ben Chiwell, and Edouard Mendy prior to the 2020-21 campaign, the Blues have only mixed success as they were struggling to get the new team together.
Earlier this term Lampard received praise for overseeing a 17-match unbeaten run, however, they lost 1-0 to Everton on December 12 and then they were defeated by Wolves and Arsenal and the Blues are now eight in thePremier League
believes although Arsenal were being tipped to ax
, Frank Lampard is at greater risk now to lose his job.
“Frank has got a real problem at the football club,” Cascarino said. “I’m not convinced by the people that say Arteta is seriously under pressure; I think Frank is under every bit as much, and even more pressure.
“Think of the history of the club, think of the owner and how he’s sacked people quite confidently, think that he’s spent £220m, think that he’s brought in a young lad from Germany [Havertz] who is not even in the team and struggled, think of Timo Werner where they spent a lot investing and he’s struggled.
“You are under pressure as a Chelsea manager to challenge because when you are given £220m I guarantee you that conversation before the start of the season would have been, ‘what do you need to challenge Liverpool and Man City?’. That conversation would have happened.”
