Sky: Chelsea new coach to be announced shortly as Frank Lampard to be sacked today

The hot headlines today is that Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is set to be sacked today and his perfect replacement has been found.

It genuinely looks like Chelsea are about to sack Frank Lampard and replace him with former PSG boss Thomas Tuchel today.

Matt Law broke the news that Chelsea are set to announce the sacking of Lampard any moment now.

However, Sky Germany reporter Max Bielefeld has tweeted that it will be Tuchel taking over.

The crazy developments have all come through within the last half an hour, and to me it looks like we will now see a double announcement in quick succession, with Chelsea clearly working on Tuchel for some time now ready to slot in straight after Lampard leaves.

What a turn of events, but it comes after a run of poor form for Lampard at Chelsea, and we know how cut-throat this board can be when the results are not coming in and the team drop too far down the league table.
