Chelsea fans want Frank Lampard to RESIGN after his post-match interview following Brentford defeat

Frank Lampard has received backlash from his OWN fans following his post-match interview after Chelsea's latest defeat to Brentford.

Lampard has lost all FIVE games since replacing Graham Potter as Chelsea manager, including two defeats to Real Madrid as they were knocked out of the Champions League.

The Blues slumped to their 13th league defeat of the season at home to Brentford, who claimed all three points on Wednesday following their 2-0 victory.

Cesar Azpilicueta scored an own-goal, with Bryan Mbeumo doubling his side's advantage to secure a big win on the road.


Speaking after the result, Lampard reflected on his side's defeat as he made a magic wand claim - something he also said during his spell as Everton boss.

"With 4-3-3, we looked more dynamic and more of a threat in the first 15-20 minutes of the second half," the caretaker manager told BT Sport.

"But still there is that feeling around at the minute that the goal might not come and [the opponents] might get something."


He added: "We have to work against that. We’d love a magic wand or a magic moment, but it doesn’t come in football, so we’ll have to fight for the moment."

Despite his status as a Chelsea legend, fans online didn't take too kindly to Lampard's comments as some people think he should resign following their defeat.


One Twitter user wrote: "Why can’t he just say these players don’t seem to give a f**k and we were shit again tonight and also I’m not helping either am I."


A second tweeted: "Magic wand excuse is out after 5 games f**k me."

A third added: "Have some shame and resign NOW!"

A fourth said: "Frank, you played Sterling up top with Gallagher and Kante either side of him. And you wonder why we can’t create or buy a goal."

Another commented: "Sack yourself man just have some grace ffs."


Chelsea languish in 11th place in the league and appear destined to finish in the bottom half of the table.

Lampard takes his faltering team to the Emirates as they face league leaders Arsenal next Tuesday.
