Lampard on player pressure, player support and supporters’ banner

‘So it is important the players don’t feel that, I don’t mind taking the pressure, the players have to feel a good pressure. They want to win games, they want to get some form back, we know how quickly the form and results can turn in this league, we have seen it now more than ever, so we just have to direct that pressure in the right way on the pitch.

‘As it is players who will always make you a good or bad or in between manager, you have to have buy-in from the dressing room,’ he continued, ‘because my opinion is football is a certain percentage tactics but it is a much bigger percentage environment, drive, positivity and desire, and all those things which create the basis in football.’
