EPL giants Chelsea Football club have parted ways with their head coach Frank Lampard following a poor start tp the 2020-2021 season.
This was revealed by the club in a statement that stated that the move was meant to give Chelsea time to improve performances and results this season. Read the statement said:
Chelsea Football Club have today parted company with Head Coach Frank Lampard.
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.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich released a statement and said the decision to part with Lampard who he said he knows personally was difficult but a managerial change was needed.
Lampard who was fired less than 24 hours after the club beat Luton Town in the fourth round of the FA Cup is set to be replaced by Thomas Tuchel who was recently sacked by PSG according to The Guardian.
