Chelsea set to appoint former manager as caretaker boss until end of season

Frank Lampard is in the running to take over as interim manager of Chelsea until the end of the current campaign.

It is anticipated that Lampard will take command of Chelsea’s next match, which will take place on Saturday at Wolves.

Just forty-eight hours after Graham Potter was fired as manager of Chelsea, the 44-year-old was there at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night to watch Chelsea’s match against Liverpool, which ended in a goalless draw.

In January of 2021, Lampard’s position as head coach at Stamford Bridge was terminated, notwithstanding his status as Chelsea’s all-time leading scorer. He took over at Everton, but he was fired in January after serving in that capacity for a little less than a year.

After holding discussions in London with Luis Enrique, a former manager of Barcelona and Spain, over Chelsea’s managerial position, the club is reportedly considering making Lampard their caretaker manager.

The 52-year-old manager, who is currently unemployed after resigning from his position as Spain’s manager after the World Cup, led Barcelona to a treble victory in the 2014–15 season, taking home titles in La Liga, the Copa del Rey, and the Champions League.

Graham Hunter, a specialist in Spanish football, explores the possibility that Luis Enrique will succeed Antonio Conte as manager of Chelsea.

As part of what they believe would be a “extensive process” to choose Potter’s successor, Chelsea are planning to conduct interviews with as many as seven potential candidates.

The names Julian Nagelsmann, Mauricio Pochettino, Ruben Amorim, Oliver Glasner, and Luciano Spalletti have been brought up internally at Chelsea as potential candidates for the position of head coach. On the other hand, it does not appear that Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi is included on the list.

Sky in Germany is reporting that negotiations between representatives of Nagelsmann and Chelsea are now taking place and are proceeding favorably.

The 35-year-old manager, who was only recently fired by Bayern Munich, has expressed interest in managing in the Premier League and views it as his natural next destination. However, despite heavy interest from Chelsea and Tottenham, he will not rush into making a decision regarding his future.

When taking on a new role, the German would like to have a little period of time to “reset,” and his first choice would be to manage the entire preseason.
