Frank Lampard knows the demands of being a Chelsea manager under Roman Abramovich more than most having played for nine different coaches during his playing career at Stamford Bridge.

Another day brings more managerial speculation at Chelsea Football Club.

You feel such speculation will only relax once Frank Lampard starts getting results with Chelsea once again.

The pressure was ramped up after the Manchester City loss, and it could get a lot worse if they fail to beat London rivals Fulham at the weekend.

However, Lampard is still the current Chelsea boss and the board appear to be allowing him time for now.

That won’t stop the rumours though, of course.


German publication BILD are the latest to offer their verdict on what they know on the situation, via reporter Christian Falk.

He has even named a shortlist of managers who could replace Lampard – Thomas Tuchel, Massimiliano Allegri, Brendan Rodgers, Ralph Hasenhüttl, and Julian Nagelsmann.

In fact, according to Falk, Chelsea have already made ‘non-binding’ contact was made with Tuchel and Allegri’s management, which essentially just means they have spoken to both parties unofficially – probably as a contingency plan.
