Chelsea have formally announced the sacking of Frank Lampard as club manager.
Lampard was shown the door barely a day after he led the Blues to the fifth round of the FA Cup following their 3-1 win over minnows Luton Town.
However, unlike their impressive form in cup competitions, Chelsea’s form in the Premier League has been at best horrible having won just three of their last eight matches.
Their disappointing form in recent weeks has seen them slip down the charts to ninth with 29 points from 19 matches, leaving the club hieracchy with no choice but to sack Lamaprd.
In a statement announcing Lampard’s sacking, the west London club said the decision was hard to make but thanked the Englishman for his services during his stint.
“This has been a very difficult decision, and not one that the owner and the Board have taken lightly,” the statement said.
We are grateful to Frank for what he has achieved in his time as Head Coach of the Club. However, recent results and performances have not met the Club’s expectations, leaving the Club mid-table without any clear path to sustained improvement,” the club further added.
