BREAKING : Chelsea Appoint Frank Lampard As Manager

0 139

Premier League side Chelsea have confirmed the appointment of former midfielder Frank Lampard as their manager on a three-year deal.


Lampard, 41, has left Championship side Derby County to take over at a club where he spent 13 years as a player.


He succeeds Maurizio Sarri, who left Stamford Bridge in June to take charge of Italian champions Juventus.


Lampard led Derby to the Championship play-off final, where they lost to Aston Villa, in his first season as a manager.


The former England international made 648 Chelsea appearances, winning 11 major trophies with them.


He takes over with Chelsea under a transfer embargo after the club were given a two-window transfer ban by world governing body Fifa – a decision they are appealing against at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
