Chelsea see options to replace Lampard

Chelsea London are already considering options to replace Frank Lampard as head coach.

We have already written that Lampard's place as head coach at Chelsea is becoming more volatile. This information has been confirmed now by more authoritative sources and has become more specific.

According to journalist Christian Falk of the German newspaper Bild, the English club may invite Thomas Tuchel in the summer. This is not news, because the German recently lost his job and he was already actively sent to Arsenal during the decline of the Gunners. But there is still a lot of time until summer and in this case the Pensioners have an option in the person of Avram Grant, who had previously come to Chelsea.

Chelsea were under the management of the Israeli coach in the 2007/08 season and took the silver medal of the Premier League and reached the final of the Champions League back then. Also, Frank's former Chelsea partner William Gallas was not very optimistic about Lampard,

“When you spend almost 250 million pounds on players, it means you want to win the Premier League. At the moment, Chelsea are not in the best position. They do not show themselves against big clubs.

Frank is under pressure, and he needs to find a solution very quickly, because, as we know, when you are a Chelsea coach, you can be fired very quickly,” Gallas concluded.

Given that Chelsea have specific options for a smooth change of head coach, the info story does not look as absurd as before. Shaking the lineup with the arrival of Gallas can have a short-term effect on the team's results, both positively and negatively. Tuchel also has a lot of questions about his long-term work. But Chelsea are not used to keeping coaches for a long time if they do not show results and interact poorly with the team.

Therefore, we believe that Lampard's resignation cannot be expected at least until the summer. Everything will depend on the results in the Premier League and the Champions League. If they are unsatisfactory, Tuchel will come to Stamford Bridge. But we very much doubt Grant's return, especially after his failures at Portsmouth and West Ham, when the teams finished twentieth in the Premier League.
