Another rumoured date for Lampard announcement appears

Chelsea will announce their next manager in the coming days with Frank Lampard tipped to be the man to fill the gap left by Maurizio Sarri.

Some details of the interview with Lampard were mentioned in the report by Sky Sports. The former midfielder was reportedly asked about his lack of experience as a manager and what his plans are to improve the club’s academy.
