Frank Lampard announced that he would not chelsea working under their next manager, Mauricio Pochettino Graham Potter is expected to be confirmed as his successor.

Lampard has been interim at Stamford Bridge in the last nine games, losing seven of them and his short-term contract will expire at the end of the season.

Pochettino is expected to be joined by his usual backroom team, possibly consisting of Jesus Perez, Miguel D’Agostino, Toni Jimenez and his son Sebastiano, while he is expected to focus on taking up another managerial role after previous terms in charge of Derby, Chelsea and Everton. .

“A new manager will always come and bring their own coach,” Lampard said.

Chelsea gave new champions Manchester City a guard of honor before Pep Guardiola’s side beat them 1-0 at Etihad Stadium, and Lampard urged their players to show the same work ethic if they want to emulate them.

I don’t think they need to make a guard of honor to understand. Manchester City have not won three consecutive (Premier League titles) at half intensity. They had to work, work and work. Players need to understand this. They have to take personal responsibility and say, ‘I want to be (Erling) Haaland or (Kevin) De Bruyne, I have to put the work they have.’ This is something they should strive for.”

Chelsea will finish this season in the lower half of the Premier League, but Lampard believes it’s up to the players what they get in the future.

He said: β€œIt is in their hands. I can’t say how long it will take. It depends on the players and the management of the club. This Premier League is getting harder and harder.”
