According to the publication, the Russian billionaire personally called the former midfielder last week to tell him he would give him time from two transfer windows to prove he was worthy of being a London manager. Since Chelsea is being punished with a transfer embargo for the next two, it means that Lampard will remain at Stamford Bridge not only during the season 2019/20 but also in 2020/21.
Today, Maurizio Sari left the club, which will have to pay compensation of 4 million. pounds of Darby County if he drew their mentor. The “Aries” offered the Englishman a new contract but most likely he would prefer to return to the team in which he spent 13 seasons as a footballer.
