’ legend,

Frank Lampard

, was hired as their head coach before the 2019-20 season after his impressive performance as Derby County boss. The best goal scorer in the club’s history finished the first season as a Premier League coach in top-four and reached the FA Cup final.

But his performance, in general, was not what the board and fans expected, and one of his key players,


, has named lack of experience as one of the most important reasons behind Chelsea’s bad results with Lampard.

"Look, I'll be really sincere here on Lampard,"

he told ESPN Brasil


"I believe, given he was a legend at the club, he skipped some steps necessary for learning before moving to a big club.

"He came to a club where he is a legend, without having experience at other clubs. I think he came too soon, skipped a few steps ahead and wasn't ready for a job at this level, to be honest."

After Lampard, the Blues hired Thomas Tuchel, and they have experienced only two defeats since his arrival, and see themselves between the top-four teams in the Premier League while they were sitting in ninth place when Lampard left, and they have also reached the Champions League semi-final and also the FA Cup final.
