Chelsea Football Club has announced the return of club legend Frank Lampard as their caretaker manager until the end of the ongoing season. This decision comes shortly after the sacking of Graham Potter, and Lampard will take over from interim manager Bruno Salter, who oversaw the team’s recent 0-0 draw against Liverpool.

Chelsea is currently struggling in the 11th spot in the Premier League table with only 39 points, a significant 32 points behind league leaders Arsenal, after 29 matches played this season. Potter was relieved of his duties on April 2 due to a string of poor results.

In a statement, co-controlling owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali expressed their delight at welcoming back Frank Lampard to Stamford Bridge, referring to him as a Premier League Hall of Famer and a legend at the club.

They also mentioned that Lampard’s appointment would provide the club and the fans with a clear and stable plan for the remainder of the season, as they continue their search for a permanent head coach. Lampard’s experience and qualities were cited as assets that would help drive the team towards a successful finish to the season.

Chelsea has an important game against Wolves scheduled for Saturday, followed by a Champions League quarter-final match against Real Madrid in Madrid next week. The owners expressed their full backing for Lampard and their determination to achieve the best possible outcome in all remaining games. Lampard’s return as manager comes at a time when Chelsea is considering options for a full-time manager, with names like Luis Enrique and Julian Nagelsmann being linked to the job.

Chelsea made significant investments in the January transfer window, spending a record sum of nearly 300 million pounds. Lampard will be hoping to get the best out of these new acquisitions in the remaining games of the season. Although Chelsea’s chances of finishing in the top 4 and securing a spot in next season’s UEFA Champions League look uncertain, they are still in contention to win the Champions League title. Their upcoming quarter-final tie against Real Madrid in April will be a crucial challenge for Lampard and the team.
