Chelsea Fc have announced that Frank Lampard has been appointed interim manager until the end of the season.
The move marks a return to Stamford Bridge for Frank, who enjoyed a stellar playing career with the Blues, winning the Premier League three times and the UEFA Champions League in Munich. He managed the club previously in 84 games, including leading Chelsea to the FA Cup final.
Co-controlling owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali said: ‘We are delighted to welcome Frank back to Stamford Bridge. Frank is a Premier League Hall of Famer and a legend at this club.
As we continue our thorough and exhaustive process for a permanent head coach, we want to provide the club and our fans with a clear and stable plan for the remainder of the season.
We want to give ourselves every chance of success and Frank has all of the characteristics and qualities we need to drive us to the finish line.
‘We have an important game against Wolves on Saturday and then we will turn our attention to our Champions League quarter-final in Madrid next week. We are all going to give Frank our full backing as we aim to get the best possible outcome from all our remaining games.’
