Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has been on a roller coaster ride during the 2020-21 season and many experts believe the manager is on the verge of being sacked.
The Blues suffered their sixth loss of the current Premier League season after they went down 2-0 at the hands of Leicester City and right now they find themselves eighth on the league table.
Many pundits think Lampard’s time at Stamford Bridge is up but in a recent piece for the Independent, Miguel Delaney has claimed that Roman Abramovich is not too keen to push Frank Lampard out of the door in the coming months.
He wrote: “Chelsea would prefer not to appoint an interim manager mid-season, potentially giving Frank Lampard even more time to try and turn the situation around.
“The 42-year-old is said to have felt his job is under serious threat in the last few weeks, as Leicester City’s 2-0 win made it five defeats in seven in the league.

“The club are nevertheless conscious of his status as an icon, and want to give him a fair chance, as part of a general long-term view.
While there is an awareness that they will have to act if these results continue, Chelsea would rather replace Lampard when there is a preferred candidate ready to take the job. They do not want the short-term issues that come with an interim boss.”
Frank Lampard is without a doubt walking a tight rope right now but Roman Abramovich will not want to bring in a new manager right before the Blues get into the Champions League.
The current boss will surely be given time to sort things out but if Chelsea cannot progress in Europe then Frank Lampard will undoubtedly be sweating again.
