Terrible way to treat a Chelsea legend, Frank should have been given more time

The media have been horrific towards him as well

Personally I thought Lampard took the Management role too quickly....I think you really need to get some experience before running a club as big as Chelsea.
Being a legend just wasn't enough..

Chelsea have sacked head coach Frank Lampard after 18 months in charge.

Former Chelsea midfielder Lampard, 42, leaves with the club ninth in the Premier League table after last week's defeat at Leicester City, having won once in their past five league matches.

His final game in charge was Sunday's 3-1 FA Cup fourth round win against Championship side Luton.

Lampard was appointed on a three-year contract when he replaced Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge in July 2019.

He guided them to fourth place and the FA Cup final in his first season in charge, and a 3-1 win against Leeds at the start of December put the club top of the Premier League.

However, the Blues have suffered five defeats in their past eight league games, as many as they had in their previous 23.

In a statement, Chelsea said: "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."

Owner Roman Abramovich said Lampard's status as an "important icon" of the club "remains undiminished" despite his dismissal.

"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," said Abramovich.

"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."

That’s rubbish ...

Even OGS was given longer and they were ‘going nowhere’ not that long ago .


Look how well he did last season with youngsters and no signings

never liked Tuchel's manager abilities, his style at PSG bit dull

Hard to feel sympathy for him when he's been a total gob****e and quick to blame everyone other than himself. The Championship is more his level for the time being.

I heard there was a rumour Roy Keane could be in the mix to manage Celtic. Speaking of Roy, he was spot on here a year ago.......

You only need to look at Southampton and Villa to see why pulling an early rip-cord is not always a good idea

And in fairness to Lampard did people see their performance against Wolves? No Manager can stop players doing Rugby shots.

that's not how current football works Mock, always blame the manager

i don't think Lampard bought most of the new signings anyway, those decisions fall back onto sports director, who is that at Chelsea if i may ask?

Chelsea players, more than any other club, should the least responsible for their own performances
