Chelsea Football Club has announced the sack of Frank Lampard as Head Coach. The parting of company is eliciting varied reactions by football enthusiasts especially on social media.

BBC Sport understands that Frank Lampard was sacked by Chelsea because the club could not see him reversing a slide in form and a lack of confidence among the squad.

The former head coach’s points per game ratio was the worst among Chelsea managers in the Roman Abramovich era, eclipsing that of Andre Villas-Boas, and it led to what was seen as irreparable damage to the season.

After qualifying for the Champions League last season, and spending more than £200m on players in the summer, the aim this campaign was to close the gap on leaders, but that has failed to materialise.

Although links will be made between Tuchel’s heritage and the poor form of fellow Germans Kai Havertz and Timo Werner, the change was made because of the lack of confidence among the whole squad.

Sky Sports’ Nick Wright:

Of the various factors that contributed to Frank Lampard’s demise at Chelsea, his inability to get the best out of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz will go down as one of the biggest.

The Germany internationals, two of the brightest young attackers in Europe, were the headline additions in Chelsea’s summer of spending, arriving at Stamford Bridge for a combined cost of around £120m from RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen respectively.

In 35 Premier League appearances between them under Lampard, however, they provided just five goals and six assists, their struggles intensifying as the season wore on.

Lampard’s replacement, Thomas Tuchel, is the man charged with reversing Werner and Havertz’s fortunes now.
