Ex-Chelsea boss Grant urges unity and patience for manager Lampard

Former Chelsea boss Avram Grant has called for unity at the club and patience for manager Frank Lampard.

Grant also called for calm as they work through their form slump.

He said on social media: "About the current situation I can say only this. You need to be strong when things are not going well, when things are going well everyone is a genius and knows what to do.

"But in the situation like this when things aren't going well you need to be strong, look for solutions and show a lot about your character."

Grant added: "What I can say to Frank and the others at the club is be patient, and more than this do whatever is necessary to do that's for sure. Two things: never lose it even when things are going well, don't lose your fighting spirit at the highest level.

"And second, don't lose what you have here [points at head] you need to think right and look for solutions. If you do that then everything will be okay because the quality is there and there is a potential like there was [at Chelsea] in my time."
