Two world-class managers in shocking link to replace Frank Lampard at Chelsea
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has been feeling the pressure as his team has not been getting good results in the ongoing English Premier League.
Mauricio Pochettino is still Chelsea’s top choice if Frank Lampard gets sacked.
That’s the claim from the Daily Mail, despite the ex-Tottenham chief just taking over PSG on a two-and-a-half year deal.
Former PSG chief Thomas Tuchel and ex-Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri remain favourites, though, should Blues owner Roman Abramovich lose patience with Lampard.

Brendan Rodgers has been hailed as Chelsea’s best choice to succeed Frank Lampard.
Former Blues’ midfielder Craig Burley believes ex-PSG chief Thomas Tuchel is over-rated and one-time Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri too “pragmatic” for Blues’ owner Roman Abramovich.

Burley believes Leicester boss Lampard is up there with Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola in the list of the Premier League’s top three coaches.
The ex-Scotland star told ESPN: “Allegri is known for pragmatism. There is nothing wrong with that but Abramovich has always tried to get away from that. He had enough of it under [Jose] Mourinho.
“I’m not a Thomas Tuchel fan. He’s done a decent job at Dortmund and PSG but I’m not on the Thomas Tuchel train.
“I look at Brendan Rodgers as, at least, the third-best coach in the Premier League.
“Is there anybody better [except Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola]? No, not even close.”
