Graham Potter has been fired, and Lampard has completed a surprising return to Chelsea for the remainder of the season. Lampard will assume leadership, according to the club, as they go through an “exhaustive process” to choose a permanent leader.
After being designated Chelsea’s interim manager, Frank Lampard said he will “concentrate on the work in hand” rather than pursuing the position full-time.
“I want to do the best possible role I can, and after that, we will see what happens,” the 44-year-old said. “I am not getting anywhere ahead of myself.”
Lampard previously led Chelsea from July 2019 until he was fired in January 2021. He last had a job when being fired by Everton in January.
