Frank Lampard ‘to be SACKED by Chelsea with his players told not to come in for training this morning’, as boss gets the boot just 24 hours after FA Cup win following dire run of form
The Daily Telegraph report that the players were told not to report to the training ground until Monday afternoon.
Confirmation could come on Monday as the club take decisive action following a poor run of results in the Premier League.
Chelsea beat Championship side Luton 3-1 in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday but the win doesn’t seem to have spared Lampard from the chop with his team a lowly ninth in the league table.
A dreadful run of league form has seen the Blues lose five of their last eight Premier League matches, leaving them well out of the title picture.
The slump in form led to mounting pressure on Stamford Bridge favourite Lampard.
