Frank Lampard ‘set to clash’ with the board over player decision

Frank Lampard has only been in his role as Chelsea manager for half a season and already there is talk of clashes with the board.

Tensions arose after the January transfer window when the board failed to bring in any new players for The Blues boss, despite him speaking publicly about the need for reinforcements.

But the reported ‘clash’ is said to be about a different subject entirely, Lampard’s supposed desire to replace club record signing Kepa Arrizabalaga between the sticks.

According to The Daily Mirror, Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia is believed to not be happy with the idea of selling Kepa, having personally pushed through the deal to sign him, and she does not want to make a loss on him.

As a result they say that the two could end up having a disagreement with Lampard not confident with Kepa as his number one goalkeeper in the long term.
