Frank Lampard felt unlucky not to end his tenure at Stamford Bridge with a victory against Newcastle United as the Premier League season came to an end.

Chelsea interim manager Frank Lampard stated that the Blues deserved to have ended the season with a victory following their 1-1 draw against Newcastle United.

The former Everton manager added that they were confident on the ball and created more chances in the game.

“I think we deserved to win. We played how I think a Chelsea side should play today.

“We were a lot more confident on the ball, we created a lot of chances and we were a threat. To be fair to Newcastle, we conceded a few chances for them as well.

“With a game that had ‘nothing’ to play for, as such, I thought both teams played with a lot of freedom and that created a good, open game but I think we should have won the game.”

The former midfielder further thank the Chelsea supporters for their support throughout the hard time.

“It was nice to say goodbye and have a moment at the end with the supporters. They were amazing,’ said Lampard.

“I think Chelsea fans, and particularly the match-going fans, saw the situation that I came into. It hasn’t been easy to turn things around in a short time, that’s the reality, but I’ve given everything in this period and I’m really connected to this club for life.

“It changed my life when I was 22 years of age and that will never change in my head no matter what. I really appreciate the way they were through the game and at the end of the game. I’m always a Chelsea person in my heart, although my work will obviously go in different directions now.

“I really appreciate the Chelsea fans and the support they’ve given me. I’m not one to get too nostalgic and I know that I have a really good bond with this club anyway, but seeing that support from the fans at the end to give me, and the lads, that send off was really special and I thank them for that.

“I’ll be back again watching a game soon, I’m sure, and I’ll always be a fan of this football club.”
