Chelsea Football Club has announced the sacking of Frank Lampard as manager of the London club after a poor run of form in the Premier League.
This was announced via the club official website some minutes ago as Frank Lampard join the list of coaches to be shown the exit door under Roman Abrahimovic era.
Announcing the news via their official Instagram account, Chelsea wrote:
Chelsea Football Club have today parted company with Head Coach Frank Lampard.
This has been a very difficult decision, and not one that the owner and the Board have taken lightly.
We are grateful to Frank for what he has achieved in his time as Head Coach of the Club. However, recent results and performances have not met the Club’s expectations, leaving the Club mid-table without any clear path to sustained improvement.
There can never be a good time to part ways with a club legend such as Frank, but after lengthy deliberation and consideration it was decided a change is needed now to give the Club time to improve performances and results this season.
