Bye, Bye, Lampard: Blues Legend to be Sacked Today
The sacking of Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is imminent and it could be any moment from now.
Chelsea are 9th on the English Premier League table despite spending over 200m pounds in the summer.
The West London side have lost five of their previous eight EPL matches.
The Blues defeated Luton Town in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday, but the notoriously impatient Roman Abrahamovic, is set to pull the trigger once again.
Former PSG manager Thomas Tuchel is in the forefront to take over from Chelsea.
The 42-year-old’s success of last season could be his downfall as he led Chelsea to champions League football despite the transfer ban imposed by UEFA last season.
His success made the owner to release funds for players, including Timo Werner, who have failed to live up to expectation.
Lampard had 429 appearances for Chelsea scoring 147 goals to become the club’s record midfield scorer.
He won three premier league titles, four FA Cups, two carling cups and one UEFA Champions league trophy and one Footballer of the year in England and FIFA silver ball in 2005.
Lampard also won one one Europa League title and two charity shields.
