Frank Lampard has downplayed speculation linking him with potentially replacing Maurizio Sarri as the manager of Chelsea. The Blues suffered a humiliating 6-0 defeat to Manchester City on Sunday, with questions now being asked regarding Sarri’s management of the club.
The Italian boss has enjoyed some success this season, but frustration remains over some of his decisions which are only magnified further with these bad results.
While Sarri remains in the dugout for now, Chelsea have a history of quick dismissals having employed 11 different managers over the last 10 years. Lampard is now being touted as a potential replacement for the 60-year-old after an impressive start to life as the boss of Derby County in the Championship.
When asked if he was excited about being the bookmakers favourite to replace Sarri, Lampard responded: ‘Bookmakers are not always right for starters. I will never get excited about that.
‘It is certainly a club I respect and a manager that I respect so it wouldn’t make me smile or anything different because my job is here. ‘I obviously follow Chelsea, have huge respect for them, and I hope to see them, put some form together and turn those results around.’ Chelsea’s next fixture is against Malmo in the Europa League on Thursday.
