Legendary midfielder, Frank Lampard, has broken his silence after being sacked by English Premier league outfit, Chelsea.
Chelsea FC yesterday officially announced the sack of club legend Frank Lampard, as a new manager is set to be announced soon.
Despite his status as the club’s greatest goalscorer, Lampard was not immune from owner Roman Abramovich’s hire-and-fire style.
Club owner, Roman Abramovich, described the decision as a tough one for the English side.
Lampard has now to Instagram to break his silence, as he expressed disappointment at being denied the chance to take Chelsea forward.
“It has been a huge privilege and an honour to manage Chelsea, a club that has been a huge part of my life for so long,” Lampard wrote.
“Firstly, I would like to thank the fans for the incredible support that I have received for the last 18 months. I hope they know what that means to me.”
“When I took on this role I understood the challenges that lay ahead in a difficult time for the football club,” he added.
“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 well. They are the future of the club.
“I am disappointed not to have had the time this season to take the club forward and bring it to the next level.
“I want to thank Mr Abramovich, the board, players, my coaching team and everyone at the club for their hard work and dedication, especially in these unprecedented and challenging times.
“I wish the club and the team every success in the future.”
