The defeat against Bayern brought Frank Lampard‘s winning rate at Chelsea down to 49%.
During Roman Abramovich’s reign, only two of Chelsea’s coaches had lower win rates than Lampard: Jose Mourinho and Guus Hiddink in the 2015-2016 season, at 38%. As a result of the decline, Mourinho and Hiddink then left quickly.
Lampard had a good start as the “captain” of the Chelsea ship. Did not receive much hope, nor was he allowed to buy players during the summer transfer window, but this young coach still succeeded in putting the team into the Top 4 in the Premier League.
However, things have gotten worse in the past few months. From following the lead of the Premier League, Chelsea suddenly decelerated and was caught by the group behind. Lampard’s teachers and students are only three points ahead of Man Utd.
In the Champions League, Chelsea face Bayern lost at home with a score of 0-3. They need a miracle to swim backwards on the opponent’s field in the second leg of the round of 1/8.
Under Abramovich, the coach with the highest winning rate was Antonio Conte in the 2016-2017 season: 77%. Another Italian coach, Carlo Ancelotti also cool hands when ranked second with the rate 70% 2009-2010 season.
There is no good record, but Lampard is likely to remain in place after the 2019-2020 season. According to experts, the boss Abramovich can sympathize with Lampard about the experience and not buying players.
From next summer, Chelsea can provide nearly 400 million USD for Lampard “to go to market”. About half of this comes from player sales in the past two transfers, especially the sale of Eden Hazard to Real Madrid.
According to the Sun, Chelsea are eyeing a series of stars like Jan Oblak, Dayot Upamecano, Ben Chilwell, Jadon Sancho, or Timo Werner. Lampard wants to build a team of top young talents and some experienced players.
