​Leicester boss Rodgers reckons Chelsea should have persevered with Lampard

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers reckons that Frank Lampard, recently sacked by Chelsea, has not been given enough time at Stamford Bridge.

"Clearly I'm really sad for Frank and his staff. I know how much the club means to him," he said.

"Looking at the squad and how young they are, they need time. He hasn't been given that time. I really feel for him. He did great at Derby.

"He had the courage to step out of an amazing career and could have taken an easier route. It was a job he couldn't turn down, even though he didn't have a lot of experience.

"Results haven't been what he would have wanted, but I feel it's a job that needed time."
