It’s the end of the road for manager and club legend, Frank Lampard as he has been sacked by the football club, Chelsea.
In a statement, confirming Lampard’s sacking, 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.”
The 42-year-old replaced Italian Maurizio Sarri in the summer of 2019, who was himself sacked after winning that year’s Europa League.
Frank Lampard is considered among the greatest players to have played for Chelsea having won three Premier League titles, four FA Cups and the Champions League in 2012.
