Chelsea billionaire owner, Roman Abramovich, will fire Frank Lampard as manager, if he doesn’t deliver a Premier League top-four finish this season.
According to former Blues’ star, Craig Burley, Abramovich will not pull the trigger except the club fails to qualify for the Champions League.
Lampard’s men are currently in the 6th position on the Premier League table with 26 points from 16 matches after losing 3-1 against Arsenal on Boxing Day.
Lampard’s got players out of form, he’s got players that aren’t fully fit, and that is a problem,” Burley told ESPN.
They’ve gone from looking one of the paciest, quickest sides in the Premier League, to one of the most pedestrian.
That is a huge issue for him because you may have noticed with this owner Roman Abramovich, he does not suffer inconsistency, bad results, no matter who it is.
“So let me be clear, Lampard is back on the chopping board currently as we speak.”
