Monday morning did not start too well for Frank Lampard, as Chelsea’s Broad of Directors have decided to axe their all-time top goalscoring manager.
Due to recent results in the league and no clear sign of improvement, Frank Lampard has been released from his duties as head coach with rumours that Thomas Tuchel ex PSG (Paris Saint Germain) manager is set to takeover in the next upcoming days.
Super Frank became manager of Chelsea in the summer of the 2019/2020 season after having a very impressive season as Derby County manager where he and his team had put in some good performances and he was working with two young Chelsea academy players, with the likes of Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori.
The season in which he joined Chelsea the club were on a transfer ban which was later shortened then the ban was removed but expectations weren’t as high for Super Frank until last summer when the club spent over £223million pounds on star players like; Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and more. So that came with high expectations which naturally puts pressure on a manager.
According to BBC Sport news Roman Abramovich said “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.”
