Chelsea are now set to sack their manager, Frank Lampard after a series of poor results. The club are rumoured to be looking at a German coach as his possible replacement.
Frank Lampard’s sacking will be announced today, while his replacement is yet to be known, Chelsea players were told not to report to the training ground until Monday afternoon.
According to the report by the Daily Telegraph, which first reported the news on Monday 25th January 2021, said Frank Lampard is set to be sacked, as the Chelsea board are ‘furious’ and ‘disappointed’ for weeks now over his failure to improve the team.
This latest news is coming barely 24hours after their 3-1 FA Cup victory against Luton Town on Sunday. The win doesn’t seem to have spared Frank Lampard from the chop with his team a lowly ninth in the league table.
A dreadful run of league form has seen the Blues lose five of their last eight Premier League matches, leaving them well out of the title picture.
The slump in form led to mounting pressure on Stamford Bridge favourite Lampard.
Those who have been lined up to replace the Chelsea legend, are Thomas Tuchel, Max Allegri, Andriy Shevchenko, Rafa Benitez, Julian Nagelsmann
and Ralph Hasenhuttl.
Tuchel, who was sacked as Paris Saint-Germain manager in December, is the bookmakers’ favourite to succeed Lampard at Stamford Bridge. Max Allegri also features highly among the favourites.
