- Massimiliano Allegri: The former Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri is also believed to be in the running for the job. The Italian manager who’s being out of a job for over 18-months since he was sacked by Juventus. The Italian manager is a proven serial winner, who has only missed out on winning only the Champions League in his illustrious career. He led his Juventus side to the UCL finals twice but only to lose to the two Spanish footballing giants of FC Barcelona and the then Ronaldo-led Real Madrid side.
- Julian Nagelsmann: Third on the list of managers being considered his young German coach who seems dead ready for such a challenge to coach a team Chelsea. Nagelsmann last season led his RB Leipzig side to the semi-finals of the UCL, only to be thwarted on their way to the final by a side led by another German manager of in-person of Thomas Tuchel. Who is actually the favourite to get this job, if Frank Lampard does indeed get the boot in the as*. Nagelsmann is in consideration for this job because he is believed to be able to get the best out of his old player currently flopping his way around at Chelsea in Timo Werner.
- Ralph Hasenhuttl:
The Southampton manager has done a fantastic job since taking over at Saint Mary’s. Ralph is yet another German manager who is tipped to do great things if given the right platform. Hasenhuttl was recorded recently taking a jibe at Frank Lampard for not actually using his protege player Timo Werner well and killing the beasts in the German forward who is just waiting to be unleashed.
- Brendan Rodgers: And finally, the last manager on the list is former Liverpool manager, who actually is coaching career at Chelsea. Brendan Rogers who is currently the manager of EPL table-toppers Leicester City, which is the side that might have just put the final nail in the coffin in Frank Lampard’s situation after their last night defeat of Chelsea at the King’s Power Stadium. The real question is would Brendan want to leave his King Power at the moment as he seems to be building something really interest over at there at Midlands club side.
Though none of this guys is certain to get the Chelsea job, however, two things are certain about them they’re all more experienced managers than the rookie over at the Stamford Bridge. Secondly, Frank Lampard’s days at the bridge are numbered.
