Chelsea Plans to Stick with Lampard as Interim Manager Despite Poor Results

[골닷컴] Correspondent Kang Dong-hoon = It is known that English Premier League (EPL) Chelsea have no plans to sack the “legend” Frank Lampard (44, England) interim manager. They are accepting the worst report card in 30 years, including falling into a swamp of 5 consecutive defeats in official matches, but they will not appoint a new coach until the end of this season.

Reporter Fabrizio Romano, an expert on the European football transfer market, said on the 29th (Korean time), “Chelsea will not change their plans despite continuing poor results.” said the news.

Previously, Chelsea lost 0-2 in the 2022-2023 EPL round 33 home game against Brentford held at Stamford Bridge in London, England on the 27th. With the defeat on this day, they fell into a swamp of 5 consecutive losses in the official game, and stayed at 11th place (10 wins, 9 draws, 12 losses, 39 points) on the leaderboard. Naturally, it is an atmosphere that has skipped the advance to the European competition.

Chelsea fired Graham Porter (47, England) just 206 days after appointing manager Graham Porter (47, England) for poor performance on the 3rd. Since then, rather than appointing a new command tower, he has been dismissed in January 2021 and called back in about two years, temporarily taking over the baton.

But Chelsea couldn’t rebound. After the appointment of Lampard as interim coach, he wrote ‘disgrace’ in 30 years since 1993, ‘losing all’ in five official games. In particular, in the quarterfinals of the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL), which was the only competition to challenge for the championship, it met Real Madrid and was eliminated with a total score of 0-4 in the first and second games.

As a result, bringing back coach Lampard, the ‘legend’, who had been voicing concerns and concerns one after another from the time of his appointment, remained as a handshake from Chelsea’s point of view. He was put in as a firefighter, but instead of putting out the fire, it only made it worse.

Chelsea, however, plan to keep Lampard at the helm and appoint a new manager at the end of the season. This is because there are only 6 EPL games left on the schedule, and it is predicted that if the manager is replaced again, only confusion will be added.

Meanwhile, Chelsea is accelerating the process of appointing manager Mauricio Pochettino (51, Argentina). Negotiations are ongoing to finalize the contract. A final agreement has not yet been reached, but it is known that it is getting closer. It is expected that the selection process will be completed at the end of the season.
