Chelsea have gone a step further to stop Frank Lampard from entering the club’s Cobham training ground to say goodbye to his players after being sacked, according to Sky Sports News.
The 42-year-old was given the boot by Chelsea on Monday, despite having beaten Luton Town in the FA Cup fourth round over the weekend.
Obviously, the Chelsea board had evidently made their decision well in advance of that game, with Lampard likely to have been dismissed either way, so it seems.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is one who has oftentimes adopted the ‘strictly business’ mentality, so couldn’t allow sentiment to affect his decision when it came to his judgement on Lampard.

The recently sacked Blues boss is a club legend who has contributed a great amount to Chelsea.
He’s dedicated the vast majority of his career in football to Stamford Bridge – and they wouldn’t even let him in to say goodbye.
