Chelsea Football Club have today parted company with Head Coach Frank Lampard.

Chelsea beat Luton Town 3-1 in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday, but the victory was not enough to keep Lampard in his job, with owner Roman Abramovich dismissing him on Monday.

Despite spending £200million on new signings during the summer, Chelsea have struggled under Lampard this season with the club ninth on the table.

The players were told not to come to the training ground until Monday afternoon as Lampard becomes the 10th manager sacked during the Roman Abramovich era.

Confirmation of his sacking came just before 11.30am on Monday after the club took decisive action following a torrid run of five losses in eight league games.
