Frank Lampard is a Chelsea legend. He once scored 211 goals for Chelsea after 13 years of service. After retiring, the midfielder decided to pursue a career as a coach. Lampard spent 18 months in charge of Chelsea from July 2019 to January 2021. He was sacked with a 52% win rate and was replaced by Thomas Tuchel.
After being terminated by Chelsea, Lampard joined Everton in January 2022 but was sacked less than 12 months later. The English coach was seen in the stands at Stamford Bridge watching the match between Chelsea and Liverpool. Lampard’s visit to Stamford Bridge comes just 48 hours after Chelsea sacked Graham Potter.
According to exclusive sources from The Sun, Chelsea are considering bringing Lampard back to the club as caretaker manager for the remainder of the season. Bruno Saltor is currently in charge of the interim role, but could be replaced by Frank Lampard if negotiations are successful.
Most recently, coach Frank Lampard agreed to lead Chelsea on a short-term contract until the end of the season. Accompanying him were Ashley Cole, Joe Edward and Chris Jones as assistant coaches.

Journalists David Orstein, Fabrizio Romano and Ben Jacobs have all confirmed this information on their personal pages, and perhaps Chelsea will announce the return of Frank Lampard in the next few hours.
