The Blues relieved Lampard of his duties on Monday despite the side claiming a 3-1 win over Luton Town in the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon.

With Lampard having lasted less than two years at Stamford Bridge, Guardiola has claimed football is now about getting results as "projects" no longer exist.

"Young and old managers – here you have to win. The people talk about projects and ideas but it doesn't exist. You have to win; if not, you will be sacked," Guardiola said, as per the Daily Mirror.

"I respect the decision from Chelsea, of course, but a huge hug for Frank and hopefully I can see him soon. When the lockdown will be over, I can go to the restaurant to see him again.

"He was appointed at a team like Chelsea after the good job he had done at Derby County, these people deserve it. But we depend on the results, not the way we play, not about philosophy or these kind of things or the projects.

"You have to get results. If you don't, you will be replaced by another manager."
