Chelsea’s poor progress made manager Frank Lampard’s chair begin to shake. If fired, the 42-year-old man can be replaced by these three figures. Anyone?
Chelsea is reaping bad progress in the Premier League. Of his last five matches, The Blue only won four points, namely one win, one draw and three defeats.
In the last two matches, Chelsea failed to win. After being bent by Arsenal 1-3 in the Boxing Day match, Mason Mount and his friends were again held to a 1-1 draw by Aston Villa.
These results make Chelsea’s position slumped in the Premier League standings. The Blues are stuck in 6th place with 26 points from 16 matches, six points behind Liverpool who have played just 15 times.
These conditions made the manager’s chair at Chelsea in the spotlight. Lampard, the legend who was recruited last season, began to be rumored to be fired by the club owner, Roman Abramovich.
Reported by the Daily Star, there are three coaches who are considered to be able to replace Lampard at Chelsea. Who are they?
First is Thomas Tuchel. The man from Germany has just been unemployed, after being fired by Paris Saint-Germain.

Tuchel himself, who is also a former Borussia Dortmundt coach, brought PSG to win the Ligue 1 season 2018/2019 and 2019/2020. Last season, he also brought Neymar et al to the Champions League final, but lost to Bayern Munich.
Then there is Massimiliano Allegri. The Italian coach had previously been rumored to be the Chelsea manager when the London giants sacked Maurizio Sarri.

The former AC Milan and Juventus coach has been tested, winning the Scudetto six times. In detail, he helped Milan win once, and the Bianconeri five times in a row in the 2014-2019 season.
In addition, Allegri was also able to bring Juventus to the Champions League final twice. However, both occasions resulted in defeat.

And lastly is Nuno Espirito Santo. The Wolverhampton Wanderers manager is considered to be able to polish Chelsea, like bringing Wolves to compete in the Premier League.
Last season, Wolves could be brought to European competition. The manager from Portugal is also considered to be suitable for handling Chelsea, if Lampard is fired.
