Why Chelsea board have been ‘furious’ with Lampard ahead of risky Tuchel appointment

Chelsea’s board have reportedly been ‘furious’ with the team’s poor form under Frank Lampard in recent weeks.

The Blues handed Lampard plenty of money to invest in the squad over the summer, with big-name signings like Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell, Edouard Mendy and Thiago Silva coming in.

However, Chelsea only seem to have gone backwards since last season as they sit a worryingly low 9th in the Premier League table.

As noted by Fabrizio Romano in the tweet below, this has understandably been met with much anger by club chiefs…

According to The Athletic, it looks like former Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel is going to be the man coming in to replace Lampard.

This is despite the Telegraph noting that Chelsea have previously been warned off Tuchel, who has certainly divided opinion after his stint at PSG.

It seems clear, however, that CFC needed a change, with Lampard losing the faith of his board after such a poor start to the season.

  3. Evans says:

    We are tried with lampand now although I had faith in him money for the players was given to him and the players were selected by himself

  4. Roger says:

    The tri-partite system of owner/ in-house staff/ manager breaks down if not all going in the same direction.
    Too much power lies with the in-house staff promoting the youth products and their own recruitment.
    If Frank had only to please Roman he would know where he stood and made appropriate decisions but the spectacle of having to please others responsible for poor buying decisions and over promoted youth players has made it impossible for him to clear out the dross and get what he wants.
    I agree with the Board that £80m on Rice is not good business but Frank was not responsible for Jorjinho, Arrizabalaga ,Emerson, and needed to beef up his midfield.
    Tuchel will need to change the structure to be successful. I fear he will see it as a short term contract and bring his own men in.

  5. Carlo says:

    disappointed with Roman ,this history of firing coaches is not the solution wen you face a rough stage . looking back to the time of Conte you supported a player who had already showed his intrest in moving out and what happened to him again at Athletico . Some times we have to put our egos aside and show a little faith in what we have , looking at it it is what i prefer to call paralysis by analysis . I think Roman was too hash to call for an axe , why never give him to finish the season .

  6. David says:

    I’ve been a Chelsea fan all my life and I am absolutely certain sacking Frank was the right decision,for him being a fantastic midfielder himself the way he thought Mason Mount was the answer is quite unbelievable,Mount is meant to be an attacking midfielder,he’s scored 2 goals all season and that was against a poor West Brom and 10 man Fulham side,all Frank said was he gives us energy that surely is not enough to lead Chelsea to anything great,I just hope Frank takes Mount with him,attacking midfielders should create and score goals not do donkey work.

    1. Jacob Williams says:

      You’re kinda right, but I the concluding Statement, to me was a little harsh. we saw the level of performance Mount produced last season, while the team was better managed.
