The Blues, Chelsea FC appoints a former manager as caretaker manager until the end of the season.
The Blues has named Frank Lampard as caretaker manager until the end of the season.
Lampard was at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night to watch Chelsea’s goalless draw with Liverpool. He was there just 48 hours after Graham Potter lost his job. Lampard will be in charge of the game against Wolves on Saturday.
Nothing has yet decided about Lampard staying beyond the summer, and the search for a full-time head coach is still ongoing.
After only 18 months in the position, the 44-year-old, who is also Chelsea’s all-time leading scorer, was fired as head coach in January 2021. Later, he took over at Everton, but after only a year there, he lost his job in January.
“We are delighted to welcome Frank back to Stamford Bridge,” Chelsea co-owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali said on the club’s official website. Frank is a Premier League Hall of Famer and a club legend.
“As we carry on with our exhaustive and thorough search for a permanent head coach, we want to give the club and our supporters a clear and stable plan for the rest of the season.
Frank possesses all of the qualities and traits we need to carry us over the finish line because we want to give ourselves the best chance of success possible.
We will concentrate on our Champions League quarterfinal matchup against Real Madrid the following week after our crucial game against Wolves on Saturday.
“We’re all going to give Frank our full support as we strive for the best possible outcome in all of our remaining games.”
