Chelsea football club have reportedly penned down two names that will take over from current manager Maurizio Sarri.
According to Sky Sports, Frank Lampard and Zinedine Zidane are top of the list of the club’s authorities.
Authorities of the club met on Tuesday to have crucial discussion over the future of Sarri after another disappointing show on Monday night in their FA Cup encounter with Manchester United.
During that game, Chelsea supporters chanted “f*** Sarri-ball”, in reference to the team’s style of play under the Italian, while they also booed his substitutions.
Chelsea have lost three out of their last four games and Sarri’s position is being increasingly subjected to threat.
The two early front-runners have vastly different experience in the dugout, with Zidane a three-time Champions League winning manager with Real Madrid and Lampard only in his first season in management at Championship club Derby County.
Zidane led Real Madrid to a LaLiga title in 2016/2017 and won the Champions League in each of his three seasons in charge.
Lampard is one of Chelsea’s most decorated players in history, having won 11 major trophies and become the club’s all-time record goalscorer with 211 during his 13-year stay at Stamford Bridge and despite his inexperience, his appointment would be well-received by supporters
