The Blues owner Roman Abramovich has reportedly warned Chelsea boss Frank Lampard that he must improve Chelsea next season or face being sacked.
According to a source at Chelsea that spoke with Football Insider, Abramovich wants to see a big improvement next season after backing Lampard in the transfer market.
The Blues have completed the signing of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner from Ajax and RB Leipzig respectively. Kai Havertz is also expected to arrive from Bayer Leverkusen after reportedly agreeing personal terms with the Blues.
Lampard guided Chelsea to a fourth place finish in his first season in charge of the Blues but Abramovich wants to see “significant improvements” from Lampard’s team next season.
Chelsea lost 12 Premier League games last season and conceded the most goals among clubs that finished in the top ten.
