Only 9th in the Premier League, the London club chose to intervene. The club legend is leaving for the benefit of the former PSG coach.
The English-language media The Athletic is categorical: Chelsea decided to part ways with Frank Lampard on Monday morning and to choose Thomas Tuchel as his replacement.
Are evoked certain tensions in the group between the legend Lampard and several players. In addition, of course, to a disappointing sporting situation. The Londoners have won just two of their last eight games and are ninth in the Premier League, eleven lengths behind leaders Manchester United. Even as Chelsea have tapped into their purses to build a top-notch squad, including signing on Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech last summer.
This departure is not frankly a surprise, just like the arrival of Thomas Tuchel, which aroused the covetousness of the club for some time. Barely more than a month after his dismissal from Paris Saint-Germain, the German technician is therefore preparing to take control of a new challenge. Used to the pressure of the big clubs, he will notably find his former defender Thiago Silva, whom he would have liked to keep at PSG. Like what, fate sometimes does things well.
