Frank Lampard has been sacked as Chelsea head manager after less than two years in charge at Stamford Bridge and is set to be replaced by Thomas Tuchel according to reports.

The club’s all-time record goalscorer was appointed ahead of the 2019/20 campaign and led the Blues to a fourth-place finish and FA Cup final in his first season at the helm.

The coach was sacked due to poor run of form even after the club invested more than 200 million pounds in the summer transfer window.

The Chelsea legend is expected to be replaced by former Psg coach Thomas Tuchel who was also sacked by his former club earlier in the month and replaced by former Tottenham manager Mouricio Pochetino.

Frank Lampard has been sacked as Chelsea head coach after less than two years in charge at Stamford Bridge and is set to be replaced by Thomas Tuchel.

Despite leading the club to an impressive fourth place finish last season, the Chelsea manager faced a huge task after a heavy investment in his squad which came with high expectations from the no nonsence owner.

According to football London, that Chelsea are currently ninth in the Premier League, well off the Champions League places, and woefully out of form has contributed to Lampard’s dismissal. The struggles of Havertz and Werner also played their part in the departure of arguably the club’s greatest-ever player.

“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,” owner Roman Abramovich said in a statement published on the Chelsea website.
