Roman Abramovich makes ‘HUGE’ decision on appointing interim manager

According to latest reports, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has no intentions of installing an interim manager if he is to sack under fire head coach Frank Lampard.

However, Lampard is under huge pressure at Stamford Bridge after the Blues suffered a fifth defeat in their last eight Premier League outings on Tuesday evening, going down 2-0 at the hands of Leicester City.

The fallout of that defeat at the King Power Stadium has centred around the future of Lampard, with more and more Chelsea fans calling for a change in the technical area.

Amongst those to have been linked with the prospect of succeeding Lampard are former Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko, Thomas Tuchel, who remains out of work after being axed by Paris Saint-Germain last month, and RB Leipzig chief Julian Nagelsmann.

Tuchel and Nagelsmann are two candidates that Abramovich is believed to be keen on, but Nagelsmann is unlikely to leave Leipzig midway through the season.
