London, January 25
Chelsea dismissed manager Frank Lampard after 18 months in charge today after the man at the heart of much of their greatest success as a player failed to deliver as coach despite spending over £200 million in the summer transfer window.
Former Paris St Germain manager Thomas Tuchel is the favourite to replace Lampard, British media reported.
Lampard, who led the club to a top-four finish and the FA Cup final in his managerial debut 2019-20 campaign, leaves with Chelsea ninth in the Premier League after a run of five defeats in eight league games. — Reuters
