Reacting to his dismissal by the Chelsea board as the club’s head coach, Frank Lampard has expressed his disappointment and noted that he was not given enough time.
Lampard being the biggest spender in the last transfer window was yesterday relieved of his duties as the head coach at Stamford Bridge following a series of unimpressive performances from the Blues.
And many have speculated that the pressure on the Englishman was as a result of the huge support he was shown in the last transfer market making the Blues spend not less than £200m in the market helping them clinch the signatures of Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell, Kai Havertz and Edouard Mendy.
Meanwhile, reports say former PSG coach, Thomas Tuchel, is ready to take up the job at Stamford Bridge as he is the board’s favourite.
Reflecting on the development, Lampard said he was sad he could not help the Blues attain the next level even when he had such a fantastic career at the club as a player.
On his Instagram account, he penned a heartfelt message expressing his gratitude to the owner, the board and the fans for their immense love in the last 18 months.
Lampard also noted that even though he was sacked, he wasn’t really surprised as he knows a club like Chelsea want to be winning always which was contrary to the results he was giving them.
Chelsea who face Wolverhampton Wanderers tomorrow evening are currently sat ninth on the Premier League table, five points behind defending champions Liverpool and eleven points behind league leaders Manchester United.
