Frank Lampard believes Andre Villas-Boas spent too much time focusing on the future of Chelsea and lost sight of the present.

Villas-Boas was sacked earlier this month following a run of poor results, and his fractious relationship with some of his senior players was one of the factors behind his downfall.

As one of the older players who lost his automatic first-team place as Villas-Boas looked to refresh the side, Lampard openly admitted his relationship with the Portuguese was difficult. And the 33-year-old told The Sun Sunday: "His plan was long-term. But somewhere in the middle of that, the present didn't go so well - and that's where the problems came."
