Chelsea board agrees to bring forward plans of emotional Lampard return

Chelsea board agrees to bring forward plans of emotional Lampard return”

Significantly, Chelsea have not asked for the suspension to be put on hold until a final decision is reached.

Lampard spent some time behind the scenes at Chelsea when completing his coaching badges, so still retains detailed knowledge of the Stamford Bridge set-up.

After just a season in charge, a deal has been reached for Maurizio Sarri to leave the club and join Serie A champions Juventus, according to United Kingdom reports, with former playing favourite Frank Lampard lined up to be Chelsea's first English manager in 23 years.

Several newspapers report that outgoing Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri, who had been linked with the Chelsea job, is out of the running after announcing that he plans to take a year off.

Lampard would bring Chelsea academy graduate Jody Morris and former coach Chris Jones with him from Derby.

Conversely, Lampard might feel it is the wrong time to make such a big move - especially with the likely handicap of no summer signings and the vast chasm that already exists between Manchester City and Liverpool and the rest.

He guided the Blues to third in the Premier League and won the Europa League, but still endured a tough campaign at Stamford Bridge with fans not convinced by his style of play. People talk about experience and what-not but what experience did Pep (Guardiola) have when he went into Barcelona's first team?

"Frank knows the club and he knows the players and the players will respect him".

The ex-Chelsea man would jump at the chance to manage his former club I'm sure, but, having just lost their best player in Eden Hazard to Real Madrid and now being under a transfer embargo, perhaps this might be a fairly hard time to take the reigns. Drogba was quoted in the Metro.

"I think it is a very good option for the club..." I don't believe that you are too young or it is too early.

Chelsea had resisted Juve's attempts to secure the 60-year-old for nothing and could end up raising in excess of that amount, depending on what Sarri achieves with the Serie A champions.
