EPL: Lampard to continue as Chelsea caretaker manager

Chelsea caretaker manager, Frank Lampard, will continue in the role until the end of the season, Sky Sports News reports.

The club appointed Lampard until the summer on April 6 and that will remain the case despite their continued poor form.

Chelsea were beaten at home 2-0 by West London rivals Brentford on Wednesday night – Lampard’s fifth defeat from five matches.

The club’s process for a new permanent manager remains ongoing – with Mauricio Pochettino the current frontrunner – and the intention is for him to takeover at the end of the season.

A decision and an announcement on the next boss is anticipated within the next week.

Chelsea were booed off by disgruntled home supporters at half-time against Brentford, while many fans choose to display their dissatisfaction further by departing Stamford Bridge early.

The numbers surrounding Chelsea’s decline are alarming – they have not won in any competition or on any ground since beating Leicester at the King Power on March 11, when Graham Potter was still in charge.
