After weeks of speculations and rumours, Chelsea have finally confirmed the arrival of Frank Lampard at the vacant head-coach position.
The 41-year-old, who is a Chelsea legend, and probably the best player that has ever played for the Club apart from John Terry, is obviously ecstatic and here’s what he said at the unveiling:
‘I am immensely proud to be returning to Chelsea as head coach. Everyone knows my love for this club and the history we have shared, however, my sole focus is on the job in hand and preparing for the season ahead. I am here to work hard, bring further success to the club and I cannot wait to get started.’
Frank Lampard took Championship side Derby County to the play-off finals last season in an impressive debut campaign as a manager and Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia couldn’t be more happy to bring back the Legend to our club:
‘It gives us great pleasure to welcome Frank back to Chelsea as head coach. Frank possesses fantastic knowledge and understanding of the club and last season, he demonstrated he is one of the most talented young coaches in the game.
‘After 13 years with us as a player, where he became a club legend and our record goalscorer, we believe this is the perfect time for him to return and are delighted he has done so. We will do everything we can to ensure he has all the support required to be a huge success.’
Now, lets win some trophies and build a legacy!
