- The Board of Chelsea Football Club has fired their manager and former player, Frank Lampard as Head coach
- Chelsea parted ways with Lampard today, Monday, January 25 due to a run of poor results and woeful performance
A new replacement will be announced in a few days time as there are rumours that former PSG gaffer and German born coach, Thomas Tuchel is number one on the list of coaches to replace the immediate ex Chelsea boss, Lampard.
In a Statement published on Chelsea’s website regarding Frank Lampard’s sack, it reads as follows:
This has been a very difficult decision, and not one that the owner and the Board have taken lightly.
We are grateful to Frank for what he has achieved in his time as Head Coach of the Club. However, recent results and performances have not met the Club’s expectations, leaving the Club mid-table without any clear path to sustained improvement.
There can never be a good time to part ways with a club legend such as Frank, but after lengthy deliberation and consideration it was decided a change is needed now to give the Club time to improve performances and results this season.
Roman Abramovich revealed after the sack that “this was a very difficult decision for the Club, not least because I have an excellent personal relationship with Frank and I have the utmost respect for him’.
“He is a man of great integrity and has the highest of work ethics. However, under current circumstances we believe it is best to change managers.
“On behalf of everyone at the Club, the Board and personally, I would like to thank Frank for his work as Head Coach and wish him every success in the future. He is an important icon of this great club and his status here remains undiminished. He will always be warmly welcomed back at Stamford Bridge.”
The club has not made any other Statement on who will replace Frank Lampard, the former Chelsea manager.
