(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Chelsea Football Club have parted company with Head Coach Frank Lampard.
The sack was contained in a statement issued today in London by the club.
The statement reads:
“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.
“This was a very difficult decision for the Club, not least because I have an excellent personal relationship with Frank and I have the utmost respect for him’.
“He is a man of great integrity and has the highest of work ethics. However, under current circumstances we believe it is best to change managers.
African Examiner reports that the club is set to announce a former Borussia Dortmund and PSG boss Thomas Tuchel as Lampard’s replacement.
