Chelsea training taken by this coach after Frank Lampard sacking

Chelsea first-team coach Anthony Barry took training on Monday afternoon in wake of Frank Lampard’s sacking, according to Training Ground Guru.

Barry only joined Chelsea for this campaign, having been a coach at Wigan throughout Lampard’s debut campaign at Stamford Bridge.

While his influence has been considered to have had a significant contribution to Chelsea’s tightening up at the back, it’s unclear whether he will remain at the club following Lampard’s departure – as with the rest of his backroom staff.

What might be a pretty good indication that he will, though, is that Training Ground Guru today revealed via Twitter that he had been entrusted to take today’s training session, with Lampard having been sacked in advance of it.

Outlets such as the Guardian have claimed that Thomas Tuchel will be replacing Lampard in the dugout. If that is to be the case, he will need coaches with prior knowledge of the squad to ease the transition into life in SW6. Barry could be one.

    i felt that the team was going backwards. The team was very skilful, but lacked grit and was not well organised at times. many of the players were not effective and the team was just passing the ball for the sake of passing. Timo Werner , should be called Timid Werner. HE cant pass or tackle and does not know where the goal is.Too many weak and mediocre players. No strategy on how to get the ball behind the opposition. Worst defensive combination of Zouma, Christiensen and Kepa. I would keep Zouma, but get rid of the other two. Some of the Chelsea players are not doing enough. Very lazy players. We have too many players, who are just prepared to pass sideways. Chelsea have gone backwards

    I think is the players fault not his fault
