Frank Lampard to be declared as the new manager of Chelsea in next 48 hours, with his assistant manager set to be announced too.
Chelsea are reportedly on the verge of signing Frank Lampard as the new Blues manager after removing Maurizi Sarri from the charge since he left for Juventus.
Even before Sarri left the club, Lampard was massively speculated to replace him. With the Former Chelsea player set to make a return, it is still a doubt about who will be his aide at the West-London club.
According to a report by the Talksport, Chelsea will declare Lampard as the first team manager in less than 48 hours. Meanwhile, it is further stated that the Chelsea legend will bring along his assistant manager Jody Morris.
Morris has been under Lampard, ever since the English International took the charge of Derby last year. Moreover, he is set to make his own return at Stamford Bridge, after several successful years as the Blues’ academy manager.
It is further reported that the former English International has reportedly agreed a three-year agreement with Chelsea. While, the Blue are also negotiating to fulfill the compensation clause in Lampard’s contract with Derby.
Both Lampard and Morris had an impressive campaign with Derby until they fell short on qualification to the Premier league after being defeated in the Championship play-offs against Aston Villa.
With Chelsea suffering through a transfer ban, the club is expected to call back several loanees or might have to find some players from the academy.
The 40-year-old has previously worked with Chelsea’s Under-18 setup, hence Morris will know the group well, having won numerous trophies during his four years with the academy.

"Football Dreams"; decent documentary from 1997 following Chelsea's academy. Some recognisable faces and names, especially if you were an avid lower-league Championship Manager 00/01 player… https://t.co/XIMZRDkAFu

For everyone shitting themselves because Lampard is liking tweets and Instagram posts… Jody Morris and FL have been doing it all season because they support Chelsea? Nothing malicious in it and nothing to be worried about… #dcfc #dcfcfans pic.twitter.com/HEYL9KeYMU
