I don’t think they will bounce back under a new manager – Lampard tells his truth
Chelsea interim manager Frank Lampard is doubtful of the Blues bouncing back next season under a new manager having gone through a miserable experience this season.
The Blues are finishing the season outside the top six on the league table and wouldn’t be playing in the Champions League next season.
Since Todd Boehly arrived at Chelsea, the Blues have had three coaches, Thomas Tuchel, Graham Potter and Frank Lampard in less than one year.
They are now on their way to welcoming Mauricio Pochettino as their next manager from next season, with the hope that things would turn around.
While fans hope the new season will be better, Lampard has warned that it won’t be easy.
“The Premier League moves on very fast; everyone is moving on and trying to do the same thing, and you see the emergence of Newcastle, Brighton, and Aston Villa and these teams that are getting themselves into that equation now.
“My experience of football is that if you switch it off, it’s not easy to switch it on. It doesn’t always become an overnight remedy.
“It’s not going to be my responsibility, but from my experience of being in a consistently performing club for many years, the moment you switch off, [it] becomes very hard to switch it on. That will be the test next year,” Lampard told reporters.
