Frank Lampard, an ex-midfielder of Chelsea has been appointed by the football club as their head coach. The deal suggests that he’ll be executing duties on this position for at least three years.
The 41-year-old player has abandoned Derby County for the purpose of taking over at the legendary football club where Lampard played for up to 13 years.
In the first season, Derby was led by Lampard as a manager to the Championship play-off final exactly where the team failed to defeat Aston Villa.
The number of Chelsea appearances made by the ex-England international amounts to 648, with 11 key trophies.
His move to Chelsea is taking place under a transfer embargo when the well-known FC were hit by a two-window transfer by FIFA. The club is currently appealing against that verdict at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
Lampard confessed that he’s totally proud of getting back to his beloved FC as a head coach. He added that football fans are aware of his great passion for the club. Now he’s all geared up towards making all the necessary preparations for the upcoming season. Lampard told he’s willing to do his best to make the club all-mighty.
