Frank Lampard has been appointed as Chelsea’s interim manager through the end of the 2022–2023 campaign, the club announced on Wednesday.
Having previously led Chelsea to a top-four finish in 2019–20 while serving as manager from July 2019 to January 2021, Lampard is back in charge for a second time.
The club hired Lampard back because he is an icon at the club and an EPL Hall of Famer, Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali, the co-controlling owners, emphasized.
The club’s owners posted a joint statement on the site saying they were “delighted to welcome Frank back to Stamford Bridge.” Frank is a legend at this club and a member of the Premier League Hall of Fame.
We want to give the club and its supporters a precise and steady strategy for the rest of the season as we continue our meticulous and exhaustive search for a new head coach.
Frank possesses all the traits and abilities we require to push us through to the finish line if we are to have any chance of succeeding.
“We have a crucial match against Wolves on Saturday, after which we will focus on our Champions League quarterfinal in Madrid the following week.
We all want to support Frank wholeheartedly as we strive for the best results in each of our remaining games.
With 211 goals for Chelsea, Lampard is quickly returning to Premier League management after his time as Everton’s manager was terminated in January of this year.
Since Graham Potter left Chelsea last weekend, the team is currently ranked 11th in the standings when he takes control.
