Good preparation starts in good time, and for Chelsea to start preparing well for the new season, the club must sort out the vacant managerial position as quickly as possible.
The Chelsea managerial seat is vacant after Maurizio Sarri left Stamford Bridge to become the new manager of Juventus. Sarri lasted only one year as Chelsea boss and has now left England to return back to the Serie A.
For months, even before the end of the season, not many knew what would be the outcome of Sarri in just his first year in charge of the club. Midway through the season, there were already rumours of sack, and the sack threat went on until the end of the season. Sarri eventually decided to call it quits as Chelsea boss after one season at the club.
A number of names have been linked with the vacant Chelsea job, but Frank Lampard is said to be the front runner for the job, and the Chelsea legend is expected to be the next Chelsea manager in no distant time.
According to Daily Express, Chelsea will unveil Lampard as the new boss of the club before the end of the week. Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is reportedly impressed with Lampard’s performance at Derby County, especially the faith he placed on youngsters and believes Chelsea youngsters will get a chance under the club legend.
Lampard has reportedly been offered a three-year deal at Chelsea, and the deal seems all set. However, with the deal not yet official, we’ve come up with two reasons why Chelsea should try as much as possible to make it official at most this week.
