Chelsea Hero Michael Essien Calls For Frank Lampard Patience

Former Chelsea star Michael Essien has thrown his weight behind his former teammate to succeed as coach of the club despite the up-and-down to start of the season.

The London based club has struggled to hit the ground running in the ongoing season despite spending huge sums of money in the summer transfer window.

But Essien who shared the dressing room with the English international for about nine years says he can succeed if he is given the needed time and has, therefore, entreated the fans to rally behind him despite the setbacks.

“He [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” he told Goal.com.

“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.” He added.
