Chelsea legend, Frank Lamport believes sacking Jose Mourinho is not the solution to the club’s problems. Speaking as a pundit on Sky Sports, the Blues all-time record goalscorer affirmed that something must change at the club.
“It has to change right now. Whether it’s attitude or performance or something else, it has to change. He’s probably looking at it very closely. Obviously we’ve been here before with Chelsea when managers change midway through the season.
“I don’t know how many times you can do that. We had some good results from doing it before but we had a different set of players at that point. But I have to say what they set out to do when Jose Mourinho came back was to have a long-term plan. What can they gain by getting rid of him now?
They are probably not going to make the top four anyway or the top six. They’re not going to get relegated I think if we are honest so I’m sure there’s a view from Roman Abramovich to say, ‘Hang on, let’s see what happens at the end of the season’.
“Why make a rash change that can’t really affect the year that much and then see where we are at the end of the year.”
The Blues suffered their 9th loss of the season few days back and are one point outside the relegation zone.
