Chelsea have today sacked Frank Lampard, after failing to get the best out of some key players in the team.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich was particularly concerned about the performance of Kai Havertz and Timo Werner.

“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,” said Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

“On behalf of everyone at the Club, the Board and personally, I would like to thank Frank for his work as Head Coach and wish him every success in the future. He is an important icon of this great club and his status here remains undiminished. He will always be warmly welcomed back at Stamford Bridge.”

Abramovich thinks the club legend was not able to utilize the skills possessed by the duo. Chelsea spent nearly £120 million on the two players.

Lampard faced increasing pressure from both the management and the fans due to the poor performance displayed by the Blues. They are currently 9th in the Premier League table with 29 points.

Their performance against Luton Town was not enough for Abramovich to change his mind about sacking Lampard. Chelsea won against Luton Town in the FA Cup qualifying for the fifth round of the competition.

Thomas Tuchel was lined-up as Lampard’s successor and would soon be announced as the new manager.

Tuchel was sacked late last year by Paris Saint Germain despite winning the Ligue 1 title in the two seasons he was in charge. However, the French giants decided to terminate his contract after failing to deliver the Champions League title.

The 47-year-old German was later replaced, by Mauricio Pochettino, former Tottenham coach.

He started his managerial career with Augsburg then later went to Mainz. He then joined Borussia Dortmund where he had an impressive career.

Frank Lampard leaves a legacy of giving opportunities to academy players to showcase their skills.
