Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard insists owner Roman Abramovich doesn’t owe him any favors.
Yet he believes he has done well enough to avoid becoming the latest managerial casualty of the billionaire’s 18-season reign.
Lampard said: “It is his prerogative. When he came to Chelsea, it made my career because maybe I would have gone on elsewhere, or whatever would have happened in my personal career.
“But fortunately I was at a club that had an owner that changed the face of it and changed my life.
“But I don’t think that should give me any head start and the job I did last year, in one year, to get us to fourth was a huge positive because of the constraints.
“After that, now I need to go again.
