Chelsea legend and head coach of Derby County, Frank Lampard has doused the speculations that he would be taking over the managerial affairs of Chelsea after Maurizio Sarri is shown the exit door at the West London Side.
Chelsea were disastrously hammered a 6-0 defeat on Sunday by rival Manchester City in their Premier League encounter which has led to talks over the future of Sarri at the club.
Although the Italian is still firmly in charge of the club as authorities have not issued any statement concerning his future, it is believed that Chelsea do not slack in firing managers that perform below par.
Being touted as the potential replacement of Sarri, Lampard said the speculation was nothing to be happy about.
Questioned on his statement of mind after being the bookmakers favorite to take over the Blues’ coaching job, Lampard replied Sky Sports that
“Bookmakers are not always right for starters. I will never get excited about that.
“It is certainly a club I respect and a manager that I respect so it wouldn’t make me smile or anything different because my job is here.
“I obviously follow Chelsea, have huge respect for them, and I hope to see them, put some form together and turn those results around.”
