Chelsea: Lampard Set To Accept Offer To Become Interim Manager After Rapid Talks


Frank Lampard is set to accept an offer to become Chelsea’s new interim manager.

The club has contaced the legendary Blues former midfielder to help bring new direction to their ailing squad following the sacking of Graham Potter.

Talks are moving forward rapidly and could see Lampard in the dugout away at Wolves or, at the latest, away at Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter final.

Lampard is out of work following his dismissal from the Everton dugout earlier this year.

He was at Stamford Bridge for the draw with Liverpool on Tuesday night along with three of the main decision makers tasked with finding Chelsea’s next manager; co-owner Behdad Eghbali and co-sporting directors Paul Winstanley and Laurence Stewart.

Bruno Saltor stayed on after Potter was sacked on Sunday to lead the team but seems reluctant to continue, describing how he felt “sad” by Potter’s exit after overseeing a 0-0 draw.

The former Brighton captain has only four years of experience as a coach and had never picked a starting line up before Tuesday night’s match.

Lampard was previously sacked by Chelsea in January 2021 under the previous owner Roman Abramovich.
