Frank Lampard has been confirmed as the new Chelsea manager. The Blues agreed a deal with Derby County worth £4 million to cover the final two years of Lampard's contract at Pride Park. The 41-year-old has signed a three-year deal upon his return to Stamford Bridge to succeed Maurizio Sarri, who departed the club after a single season in charge to take over at Juventus. Lampard spent 13 years as a player in west London, scoring 211 goals in 649 games to become Chelsea's all-time top goalscorer. He won three Premier League titles, the Champions League, four FA Cups, two League Cups and the Europa League while also finishing second to Ballon d'Or winner Ronaldinho in 2005.
After Chelsea’s 2-0 loss to Manchester United in the FA Cup, Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri, is under immense pressure to turn things around. Following a series of losses and Chelsea's drop to sixth in the Premier League, there have been calls for the sack of the former Napoli manager.
