Where Will Chelsea’s Goals Come From?

It is not clear if Marina Granovskaia was aware that André Villas-Boas was back in the market after a year and a half out of the game, but the Portuguese former manager would have allowed himself a wry smile on learning about Frank Lampard’s appointment this summer.  Installed as manager by struggling Marseille a month before the Chelsea legend was announced as the Blues’ new boss, Villas-Boas famously tried and failed with his youth integration policy at Stamford Bridge eight …

Chelsea will never have a better opportunity to appoint Frank Lampard as manager

Maurizio Sarri has now left Chelsea, which leaves a vacant manager's role at the club. There only appears to be one candidate with Frank Lampard the overwhelming favourite for the post.
