It will take time to solve Chelsea’s problems – Lampard
Chelsea interim coach, Frank Lampard, has said he did not expect to solve all of Chelsea’s problems in one day after his return to the hot-seat ended in defeat at Wolves.
Chelsea lost 1-0 in Lampard’s first game since his surprise appointment as caretaker manager 27 months after he was sacked from the role.
The Blues failed to score for the third successive game as they suffered an 11th league defeat of the season.
“It’s a big task managing Chelsea,” said Lampard, whose side are 11th.
“We know we’re not in a position we want to be in. There’s always a reason for it.
“I didn’t expect to solve everything in one day. You have to have more aggression in your game, more speed and more competitive duels which go your way.
“The players need to be aware of that because without that you can’t win games. It was interesting to see anyway, I’m here to help with that. It’s not stinging criticism, I know there’s a lot of talent there.”
Chelsea are without a win in four games and their next match is away to defending European champions Real Madrid in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League on Wednesday (20:00 BST).
