The Finest Chelsea Player In The Past, But His Managerial Tenure Can Be Considered A Failure

Frank Lampard can be considered as one of the finest Chelsea players in the past but his managerial tenure at Chelsea can be considered as one of the worst for the blues. Lampard took over the managerial reins from former Napoil Coach Sarri who is currently Juventus manager, Sarri failed to maintain the consistency achieved under Antonio Conte. He inherited a team comprised of many players in the twilight of their careers and he failed to replace them adequately and by the time his tenure came to an end, Chelsea had slipped well below the top and clubs like Manchester City and Manchester United became more competitive for the title challenge.

Lampard has to be considered an exception in this list of some poor managers considering he is an astute manager who has not enjoyed great success in the past, before taking over the managerial duties of Chelsea who owned by Roman Abramovich, a man who has sacked many managers since taking over the club.

After just one season in the Championship, the Blues legend was then given the opportunity to make an emotional return to Stamford Bridge. He jumped at the chance, despite his relative lack of coaching inexperience and the fact Chelsea were being forced to operate under the constraints of a transfer embargo.

The Blues legend is still cutting his teeth in top tier management, but he is enjoying the pressure of making big calls and chasing down targets. Do you agree?
