Chelsea Football Club have announced that the club has parted ways with coach Frank Lampard.

See reactions below:
The last bit says it all, with Arsenal and Manchester United choosing to back their manager despite rocky periods earlier this season. There's a sense that a new manager can get the club the new manager bounce to achieve short-term goals better than Frank Lampard could. #CFC

Frank Lampard never got the send off he deserved as a player. Now he doesn’t get the send off he deserves as a manager 💔
Chelsea’s greatest. #CFC

Absolutely unprecedented for Abramovich to feel the need to explain a managerial sacking. Just shows what a big decision it was on Lampard and the esteem he is held in by all at the club, despite this decision #cfc

Lampard sacked after spending £220 million in one window but I thought being a ‘chequebook manager’ was supposed to be easy? Or maybe…just maybe you actually need tactics and proper coaching to win titles

Frank Lampard’s managerial reign has been a success. Not only bringing in and establishing the youth but attracted huge names to the club and has left a brilliant squad for Thomas Tuchel. Tuchel wasn’t my first choice, but I’m interested to see how he does & will back him now.

When the pandemic finally eases, and Chelsea fans are allowed back into Stamford Bridge, they will remind the board of their love for Frank Lampard. He's made mistakes, young managers do, but he cares deeply about #cfc. If only every player there shared his passion for the cause.

The amount of anger Chelsea fans will show towards Abramovich & the board when they get back into Stamford Bridge will be monumental.

Mount, James, Tammy, Gilmour, Tomori and CHO are nothing if there is no Frank Lampard. Such a great young prospects for the club proved by Frank last season and till now. Didn't expect he'll gone too soon tbh. Those were the greatest gifts by Frank 😭

100% I’d take Lampard in the city coaching staff. He took the Chelsea job too soon in my opinion and should of taken longer to learn the management side of the game.

Is not as easy as it seems though, end of the road for Lampard 🤪
