Chelsea are set to make the decision to sack Lampard official as soon as today after the players were asked not to report to the training ground until Monday afternoon ahead of their league game against Wolves, scheduled to be played on Wednesday.
According to the Telegraph, Chelsea will sack Lampard as soon as on Monday with the Blues suffering from a torrid run of form in the English top-flight.
The Blues have struggled to stitch positive results of late even though they won their matches against Luton Town, Fulham, Morecambe and West Ham, they have suffered defeats against Leicester City, Manchester City, Arsenal, Wolves, Everton and drew against Aston Villa.
There was a general notion that Lampard was being backed by the Chelsea board as he is a legendary player for the club but it looks like the hierarchy had enough and wants a new manager to take the charge at the Stamford Bridge.
Meanwhile Thomas Tuchel’s agent is currently at Chelsea’s training ground in Cobham trying to strike a deal for his client.
Tuchel, who was recently sacked by Paris Saint-Germain, is favourite to be appointed the next Chelsea manager.
