Frank Lampard: 'Chelsea have different benchmark since Brendan Rodgers comments'

Frank Lampard's Chelsea will face one-time Blues academy coach Brendan Rodgers in his current, highly successful guise as Leicester manager on Tuesday.

Frank Lampard believes Chelsea have a different “benchmark” from when Brendan Rodgers claimed taking the Stamford Bridge job could “destroy” the Northern Irishman’s managerial career.

Lampard’s Chelsea will face one-time Blues academy coach Rodgers in his current, highly-successful guise as Leicester manager in Tuesday’s Premier League clash at the King Power Stadium.

Rodgers was touted as a managerial contender when Chelsea sacked Andre Villas-Boas in 2012, but the then-Swansea boss publicly distanced himself from any links, suggesting the job could do more harm than good.

Chelsea’s recent wobbles have led to speculation on Lampard’s future in west London, but the 42-year-old insisted the Blues are far from the only Premier League club where a patchy run of form would yield intense scrutiny.

“It has to be short-term in this job, and it’s not just for myself by the way,” said Lampard.

“Let’s not make Chelsea out to be the only club like this. We’ve seen a couple of big clubs and big managers be questioned within one or two or three weeks of a couple of results this year.

“And that’s the modern world. So I’m not crying out about this, that’s the Premier League, we all have different expectations.

“If we’re seen not to get to them, then pressure comes; that’s why we’re in this job, to be able to handle that.”
