Can interim coach Frank Lampard, who will lead Chelsea for the rest of the season, write another miracle?
Chelsea announced the appointment of Lampard as manager through their official website on the 6th (local time). He won the interim title and led the team for the remainder of the season.
Chelsea, which started under the leadership of Thomas Tuchel (Dortmund), is in great turmoil. At the beginning of the season, he made an early change of command tower and entrusted the baton to coach Graham Porter. There was no effect of coach replacement.바카라사이트
Porter failed to show leadership skills during his time at Brighton & Hove Albion. He recorded 7 wins, 7 draws and 8 losses in 22 league matches. There were more defeats than victories. Chelsea’s crisis continues. They are in 11th place with 10 wins, 9 draws and 10 losses. They are 14 points behind 4th place Manchester United (53 points).
Lampard took over under difficult circumstances. It was a possible choice because he had already been with him once. Coach Lampard, who was a Chelsea legend during his active career, led the team for about a year and a half from the summer of 2019. He judged that he was the right person to lead Chelsea in a short period of time, although he had achievements and regrets.
“It’s not about unfinished previous work,” Lampard said of his inauguration background. “It sounds like a Hollywood story, but I just wanted to help Chelsea as much as I could.”
It’s a temporary job, but there are examples that can motivate Lampard as well. During the 2012 season, Chelsea entrusted the helm to Jeonbuk Hyundai advisor Roberto Di Matteo. He was also an interim manager, but he achieved great results.
He won the European Football Association (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) and the English Football Association (FA) Cup, and was later appointed as the official manager. It was also a time when Coach Lampard was with him as a player. Among football fans, it is sometimes called ‘Cellam Dunk’, referring to the comic ‘Slam Dunk’ in which he wrote his miracle.
This season, Chelsea are in the quarterfinals of the UCL. The first leg of the quarterfinals will be played against Real Madrid on the 13th (Korean time). If Chelsea beat Real Madrid and go to a higher place, there is a high possibility that there will be a big change in Lampard’s position.
Coach Lampard said, “Director Di Matteo has done an amazing job to get to the official appointment,” and drew a line, saying, “But it is a different time in the club’s history.” He said, “It’s not my decision to stay,” he said, “what’s important to me is to put that aside and do my job,” promising to focus on the work in front of me.
Finally, coach Lampard said, “I will not get ahead myself,” and “I will do my best to influence the team during this period.” Then he added, “Let’s see what happens later.”
Meanwhile, coach Lampard’s return to Chelsea will be held against Wolverhampton Wanderers on the 8th at 11:00 pm.
