Monday morning news came with Chelsea’s decision to sack Frank Lampard as the club manager, after 18 months in charge.

It looked like Lampard was in for the long haul after guiding Chelsea to a top four finish last season, and then started the season brightly until the start of December.

Following Chelsea’s poor run of one league win in as many league games, the 2-0 defeat to Leicester City was the last straw for Roman Abramovich.

Speaking in his press conference today, David Moyes revealed his disappointment at the sack, as another British manager loses opportunity to coach a top team.

Moyes said: “I am disappointed for Frank because I saw him as one of the best up and coming young managers in the country and I think it is a big thing that we do try and encourage young British managers into the big leagues if we can.

“I am disappointed for Frank but I am sure he will come back and learn from it, he did a great job last year with the team. He did a really good job with so many of the young players from the academy, they had a really good side last season especially, but it just seemed a little bit harder for him this year.

“I wish him good luck, he’s a good guy Frank and I am sure he will take time off and then come back and get better from it.”
