Lampard tipped to take over as Chelsea manager as Sarri faces sack threat

Frank Lampard has been tipped to become the next manager of English Premier League side Chelsea. This is following a 6-0 loss the London club suffered at the hands of Manchester City last Sunday.

Lampard tipped to take over as Chelsea manager as Sarri faces sack threat


Since the defeat, the job of manager Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge has been threatened. Recall that his side suffered a 5-0 loss to Bournemouth just about a week before the game at City.

Lampard’s job at Derby County has been impressive in the Championship which has given him an edge over Zinedine Zidane who is also tipped for the job.

Also edged out is Jose Mourinho who was sacked by Manchester United in December. A strong contender is Didier Deschamps who led France to world cup glory in Russia.

When the former Chelsea player was asked about taking over at Chelsea:

“My job is here,” Lampard said at a media conference.

  1. Well cheasea really messed up but why the sack afterll the man said they will doing well on the weekend before the loosing.

  2. Lampard will be a good replacement. But he will need the full backing of the players and the board including the owner. I think with him the atmosphere would be lighted up and the players can go on to get positive results in the coming weeks. Chelsea deserve more than this.

  3. I advice that Chelsea think first and not to make decision out of desperation & bitterness afterall, win and loss is bound to happen in every game

  4. i dont think it is all about changing coaches.. what if lampard resume as new coach for chealsea and the same thing happen.. it all depends on the team

  5. Does it men that Sarri cannot manage the club again? There is always room for improvement is what I believe

  6. Chelsea are at fault for bringing a man that have never won a major trophy in his career. Do they expect him to perform miracle?

  7. I don’t think changing of coach at every give mistake or lost in a competition will make the team improve but I think more of team work and love shared with both the coach and players will bring good result.

  8. Chelsea coach should be given more time to build the team and not necessarily sacking him now, although lampard will also make a good coach

  9. A good footballer doesn’t necessarily translate to a good coach! But anyone including me is better than 6-0
