LONDON, United Kingdom
Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has returned to the London club as its new head coach on a three-year-deal.
Lampard 41, will replace Italian boss Murauzzio Sarri, who left to take charge of Serie A champion Juventus last month.
He besides Maradona is considered one of the greatest players of all times. He left the Blues in 2014 having won three English Premier League titles during 13 years at the club.
Speaking about his return to Stafford bridge, the former football legend said : “I am immensely proud to be returning to Chelsea as head coach. Everyone knows my love for this club and the history we have shared. However, my sole focus is on the job in hand and preparing for the season ahead. I am here to work hard, bring further success to the club and I cannot wait to get started.”
