Premier League giants Chelsea have sacked manager Frank Lampard on Monday, after a poor run in the past few matches.
According to reports, one of Leicester City manager Brendon Rodgers or former PSG boss Thomas Tuchel is expected to take over the charge from Lampard.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich said it was a tough decision for the club.
“This was a very difficult decision for the club, not least because I have an excellent personal relationship with Frank and I have the utmost respect for him,” said owner Roman Abramovich.
He further said that Abramovich is man of great integrity and claims under current circumstances we believe it is best to change managers.
“He is a man of great integrity and has the highest of work ethics. However, under current circumstances, we believe it is best to change managers.
“On behalf of everyone at the Club, the Board and personally, I would like to thank Frank for his work as Head Coach and wish him every success in the future. He is an important icon of this great club and his status here remains undiminished. He will always be warmly welcomed back at Stamford Bridge,” he added.
