a few days ago the Chelsea announced the dismissal of Graham Potter as coach of the English team due to poor results, now with only two months to go before the end of the season and with the Champions League quarterfinal match against real Madrid very close, the board of the London club announced to Frank Lampard as interim coach until the end of the season.
Chelsea announced it through their social networks and already had its official presentation, the ex-player of the club will return to the bench of the first team after his time between 2019 and 2021, when he led the Blue in 84 games.
During his stay in London as DT he left a record of 44 games won, 15 draws and 25 losses. Lampard will have to try to accommodate Chelsea in positions of European competition, they are currently in the eleventh box of the premier league in the absence of 9 days.
On the other hand, in the Champions League they will face real Madrid for a pass to the semifinal of the tournament, which can also be decisive to save the irregular campaign of the English team.
“It’s very exciting for me to come back here, I have a special connection with this club both as a player and as a coach”commented the new Chelsea strategist.
Luis Enrique and Nagelsmann will have to wait
In the Chelsea offices, the most likely candidates to replace Potter were Luis Enrique and Julian NagelsmanHowever, the club’s board of directors decided to bring in an old man known as Frank Lampard.
But the dispute between the Spanish coach and the German for keeping the Blue bench will probably not end here, since Lampard will only be there until the end of the season, so it is very possible that before the start of the new season Luis Enrique and Nagelsmann return to be among the most famous to reach Chelsea with a long-term project.
