The journey is over for Frank Lampard.
Latest news out of the Blues head office in South West London has confirmed that Chelsea have sacked Frank Lampard.
The former Blues player and the club’s top goal scorer was given the reins back in the summer of 2019 at a time of dire circumstances at Chelsea.
The club had been handed a lengthy transfer ban and had just lost their talisman Eden Hazard to Real Madrid.
Lampard, who is comparatively new to the coaching job was given the hot seat, a move which in the short term seemed to be the immediate fix the club badly needed.
Frank put together a team from the broken fragments left at Chelsea and more importantly introduced to the club, a never seen before culture of playing youngsters from the academy.
Throughout his first season, he developed stars like Mason Mount, Reece James, Tammy Abraham, Billy Gilmour, Callum Hudson-Odoi to name a few.
However, it all changed this summer when the board backed Lampard’s work by spending north of $250 million in the market.
Frank was given top class players to deliver success but six months later, Chelsea are languishing in the 8th spot in the table with 5 defeats in the last 8 league matches.
It is definitely sad to see a club legend bid farewell but objectively looking, Lampard has been given the longest rope of any Chelsea manager in the last two decades and there must not be any regrets.
We wish you well, Frank – you shall forever remain one of us.
