Chelsea Football Club have annouced the sack of its head coach, Frank Lampard.
Lampard’s dismissal may not be unconnected to the poor performance of the team in the Premier League.
The club on Monday confirmed the sack in a statement on Monday
“Chelsea Football Club have today parted company with Head Coach Frank Lampard,” the statement read.
“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.”
Former Paris Saint-Germain boss, Thomas Tuche is being sounded to take over the management of the club.
