Journalist David Ornstein shared information about the circumstances behind Frank Lampard becoming the head coach of Chelsea. Lampard reportedly only got a job at the West London club because Chelsea were banned from transfers in 2019.
Ornstein notes that under different circumstances, Chelsea executives would have called in a coach with a more serious resume. However, due to the transfer ban, the blue bosses were extremely limited in finding a replacement for Maurizio Sarri.
Note that Chelsea are miserably failing this season in the Premier League. Recently, rumors have circulated in the British press about Lampard’s impending resignation.
