After 18 months in office, Chelsea have sacked its manager Frank Lampard, who is said to be replaced by former Paris St. Germain Thomas Tuchel.
Chelsea said on Monday that after a bad race in the Premier League, they had sacked manager Frank Lampard.
After the loss in last week’s game with Leicester City, Lampard left with club ninth in the Premier League after winning once in his last five league matches.
His final game was a fourth-round victory over Luton on Sunday’s 3-1 FA Cup.
When he replaced Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge in July 2019, Lampard was named on a three-year deal.
In a Monday night statement, Lampard said that he was “disappointed not to have had the time to take the club forward” and added that the management of the club had been a “huge privilege and an honour”.
“When I took on this role I understood the challenges that lay ahead in a difficult time for the football club,” he continued.
“I am proud of the achievements that we made, and I am proud of the academy players that have made their step into the first team and performed so well. They are the future of the club.”
Chelsea is looking forward to the new Tuchel management for the Wolves game at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.
But he will not be exempted from coronavirus quarantine.
However, if Tuchel tests negative on entry to the United Kingdom and then negative again in order to enter a Premier League club’s bubble, he will be granted an exemption by the Football Association for attending matches and training.
He will still have to serve a quarantine period outside of those environments, which will last five days.
