Essien: “Lampard needs time to find a winning team”

Former Chelsea and Real Madrid Midfielder Micheal Essien believes his former Chelsea teammate Frank Lampard needs time to build a winning team.

Chelsea splashed over £200m during the last Transfer window but have only won thrice in their opening nine games of the season; a run of poor form that has got people talking.

Speaking to Goal, Michael Essien thinks it’s normal for a Club to have up and downs and has backed Chelsea to improve with time.

“Lampard is Chelsea, he knows the club inside out and what needs to be done," 

"He will get the help of everyone there and I think so far that he has done a good job.

"Last season was a good achievement and it isn't an easy place to manage. The fans can demand a lot so it isn't easy, and he is doing his best.

"Football is full of ups and downs, you have to understand that. Get behind the team instead of not being happy after every bad result.

"The job is not easy so you have to be patient and push the team, then hopefully they will do well. They have added good players so they will have to deliver as a lot is expected now.

"The young players are doing well but I don't know if they could play in my old team! I am joking because I like the young players, with the likes of Mason Mount, but you need to raise your game at Chelsea constantly."
