Chelsea legend Frank Lampard is losing face as he suffered his worst performance as acting manager.
Chelsea, led by acting coach Lampard, lost 0-2 in the 33rd round of the English Premier League in the 2022-23 season against Brentford held at Stamford Bridge in London, England on the 27th (Korean time).
Chelsea took the lead in the 37th minute when Cesar Azpilicueta scored an own goal from a corner kick. Then, in the 33rd minute of the second half, he gave up a key goal to Brian Mbeomo and bowed his head.
As a result, Chelsea suffered five consecutive defeats since Lampard took over as acting manager on the 6th.
Chelsea are currently in 11th place with 10 wins, 9 draws and 13 losses (39 points). Chelsea is not far behind Crystal Palace in 12th place and Wolverhampton in 13th place (37 points above), so depending on the results of the remaining matches, it may fall to the mid-lower ranks.
It is a ranking that is bound to hurt the pride of Chelsea, which has consistently climbed to the top after finishing in 10th place in the 2015-16 season.
Legend Lampard, who appeared as the team’s firefighter in Chelsea’s fall, is also bowing his head.
Todd Boley, who took over Chelsea ahead of this season, sacked manager Thomas Tuchel at the beginning of the season and appointed manager Graham Porter. However, Porter also fell short of expectations, and Chelsea sacked Porter after seven months and left Lampard in charge for the remainder of the season.
Acting coach Lampard started leadership at Derby County in 2018 and took the Chelsea baton in July 2019, but was sacked in January 2021 for poor performance. Coach Lampard, who had been a savage, took the baton of Everton, which was in the relegation zone, in January 2022 and succeeded in retaining the team, but when the team was sluggish this season, he put down the baton last January.
