- Last English Premier League season, Frank Lampard was appointed as Chelsea boss following the sack of Maurizio Sarri
- At the end of last EPL season, Lampard took Chelsea to a Top 4 finish and qualified them for the UEFA Champions League in which they are now in the Round of 16 knockout stage
- In modern day football, the last result speaks volume of how a manager’s performances and tactical approach are all about, as well as getting a long streak of wins for his team.
Currently, Chelsea boss and former player, Lampard happens not to fall in this category of football manager with good results, as The Blues are 8th on the Premier League Table.
Brendan Rogers added more salt to Lampard’s injuries last night when his Leicester City boys brushed aside Chelsea by two goals to nothing. The Blues only toiled and laboured in vain, without scoring even a consolation goal.
Following yet another abysmal performance by Lampard’s team against The Foxes on Tuesday night, the former Derby County gaffer’s coaching credentials have continued to be scrutinised. This has further raised the question that, is Lampard an average football manager?
The fans and pundits are left to answer that, as there are calls that former AC Milan manager, Max Allegri should be appointed to replace the embattled Lampard.
A few days ago, fellow EPL manager and Southampton coach, Ralph Hansehuttl spoke about the fact that Lampard should adapt his tactics towards the playing style of striker, Timo Werner. Werner, who scored goals for fun last season with RB Leipzig in the German Bundesliga has now gone at least 10 EPL matches without a goal.
Will Lampard change his tactics and team selection in the coming games or continue playing the same style till he gets fired? Time will definitely tell.
