Chelsea boss Frank Lampard accepts the pressure that comes with the job at Stamford Bridge.


Frank Lampard knows the expectations from Chelsea football club are already high after the major spending splurge at Stamford Bridge.


The west London side have spent more than £200million in the signing of Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva, and Kai Havertz, and could still bring in more additions this summer.


All in all, Lampard says he just has to accept the pressure that comes with the job.


“I’m very aware that a club like Chelsea, even though we had a transfer ban, even though the year was difficult, expectations are going to go up hugely,” Lampard said as the Mirror quoted.


“And I just have to accept that as part of the job, and try and go about my job as well as I can. And then if I am having relationships, between managing up (to the board) or managing around me, I have to be as good as I can with those because they’re really important.


“Because the tough times will come, and I’ll rely on those, all of those little ones. And it might not be managing up, that might be managing the kit man or a member of staff around you.


“Because I’ve seen how the dominoes can fall very quickly. And I think if you isolate yourself as a manager, or you don’t want to open yourself up to all of those relationships along the way, I think they fall much quicker.”
