Former Chelsea coach Avram Grant could return to aid Lampard

Wed 13 January 2021 | 15:56

Previous head coach Avram Grant could go back to Chelsea to help Frank Lampard in his troublesome time at the Blues' helm, as indicated by reports.

The 65-year-old drove the Pensioners with Lampard as their playmaker to the

Champions League

final in 2008, and reports suggest that proprietor

Roman Abramovich

is thinking about taking him back to London. 

The Russian businessman imagines that Grant could offer Lampard's training group a significant experience as they plan to pivot a plunge in performance. 

Chelsea have only won two of their last six

Premier League

matches, tumbling to the 10th spot in the league table, and the temporary arrangement of the Israeli could help reduce the tension on Lampard. 

Former Ghana and Israel coach recently posted a video on his Instagram account in which he offered some counsel to the 42-year-old Lampard. 

"You need to be strong when things are not going well, when things are going well everyone is a genius and knows what to do," he said. 

"But in the situation like this when things aren't going well you need to be strong, look for solutions and show a lot about your character.

"What I can say to Frank and the others at the club is be patient, and more than this do whatever is necessary to do, that's for sure. 

"Two things: never lose it even when things are going well, don't lose your fighting spirit at the highest level.

"And second, don't lose what you have here [points to his head] - you need to think right and look for solutions. 

"If you do that, then everything will be OK because the quality is there and there is a potential like there was in my time."

Grant coached NorthEast United in the Indian Super League in 2018, and he drove Ghana to the Africa Cup of Nations final in 2015.
