So what next for Frank Lampard?
The Stamford Bridge legend was given his marching orders by Roman Abramovich earlier this week and there is already speculation as to where Lampard will end up next. The young manager is sure not one to hang around and there are plenty of potential offers waiting on the the table.
Although many saw the Chelsea job of something of a work in progress, summer signings have definitely failed to deliver and have made the decision much easier to take, in particular Timo Werner & Kai Havertz who have failed to live up to their billing.
The Blues have had a dismal run of form of late, winning just two of their last eight Premier League games which is obviously not good enough for the Chelsea board and enigmatic Russian owner.
After 19 months in charge Lampard has been given his marching orders, some would say an early shower considering the duration of his stay in the West London hot seat.
That being said, there are already odds being offered on where Frank Lampard will end up next
