Lampard confirmed as Blues boss
Chelsea have announced the appointment of club legend Frank Lampard as their new manager on a three-year deal to succeed Maurizio Sarri.
In an official statement released by the club, Lampard said he was ‘immensely proud’ to return to Chelsea as head coach.
“Everyone knows my love for this club and the history we have shared, however, my sole focus is on the job in hand and preparing for the season ahead. I am here to work hard, bring further success to the club and I cannot wait to get started.”
Lampard, Chelsea’s all-time top goalscorer, guided Derby County to a sixth-place finish, and subsequently the play-off final, which matched former boss Gary Rowett’s final campaign in charge.
The 41-year-old’s appointment comes after his former team-mate Petr Cech was confirmed as the club’s new technical and performance advisor following his retirement from football, while Claude Makelele is also expected to join the coaching staff.
