Frank Lampard was appointed Chelsea’s head coach on 4 July 2019, returning to the club where he had a hugely successful 13-year playing career.
Lampard initially came through West Ham United’s academy, making his Premier League debut in January 1996.
He helped the Irons to their highest-ever finish in the competition, fifth place in 1998/99, and victory in the UEFA Intertoto Cup the same year.
Lampard moved across London to Chelsea in the summer of 2001 and went on to become the Blues’ all-time record goalscorer with 211 strikes, 147 of them coming in the Premier League.
He won three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, two League Cups and both the UEFA Champions League and Europa League with Chelsea, while he was named the Premier League Player of the Season in 2004/05.
Lampard, who also earned over 100 England caps, moved on to Manchester City in the summer of 2014, making 32 Premier League appearances while scoring six goals in his season at the Etihad Stadium.
He finished his playing career in Major League Soccer with New York City, announcing his retirement in February 2017 at the age of 38.
Lampard began studying for his UEFA A Licence with help from Chelsea, who allowed him to assist with academy coaching sessions.
He was given his first managerial position in May 2018, taking the reins at Championship side Derby County, whom he led to the playoff final in his only season with the club.
Just over a month after that showdown with Aston Villa at Wembley, he returned to Chelsea as head coach, replacing Maurizio Sarri.
