The England international moved to Chelsea from Manchester City in a transaction that was valued 47.5 million pounds last summer. Despite this, the transfer has not been a success for the Blues, who are now in the bottom half of the Premier League standings and are on a losing streak of six games in all competitions.
The Blues have had a dreadful run of form recently, as evidenced by the fact that they are currently 12th in the Premier League table after suffering four consecutive losses and are closer, in terms of points, to the relegation zone than they are to the European places.
After Graham Potter and Thomas Tuchel were both fired earlier in the season, Frank Lampard is currently serving as the club’s interim manager, and things are not going well. It is evident that the club legend is not the answer to the team’s managerial woes.
“Personally, this is one of the lowest points in my career. This might sound a bit weird, but it is also a great learning curve.”
“It’s been pretty smooth sailing winning, winning and winning but sometimes in life stuff gets thrown at you and it is a challenge that I’m looking forward to, hitting it head on and not trying to hide from it.”Sterling told Sky Sports.
Lampard is still in command as the team travels to take on Bournemouth on Saturday, with the knowledge that a loss would send them to the bottom of the standings, behind even the Cherries.
Although no agreement has been finalised as of yet, former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is the frontrunner to replace Lampard permanently this summer.
