Manager Bio

Frank Lampard was named as Chelsea caretaker manager on 6 April 2023, until the end of the season.

Lampard first rose to prominence as a player, coming through West Ham United's Academy and making his Premier League debut in January 1996.

He helped the Hammers to their highest 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 enjoy a glittering playing career at Stamford Bridge.

He became the Blues' all-time record goalscorer with 211 strikes, 147 of them coming in the Premier League.

Lampard 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.

After leaving Chelsea, Lampard would spend a single season with Manchester City in 2014/15, netting six goals from 32 Premier League matches. 

He finished his playing career in Major League Soccer with New York City, announcing his retirement in February 2017 at the age of 38.

His first managerial position came in May 2018 at Championship side Derby County, whom he led to the playoff final in his only season.

Shortly after that Wembley loss to Aston Villa, Lampard returned to Chelsea and take over from Maurizio Sarri.

Chelsea finished fourth in his first season and Lampard would be a contender for the 2019/20 Barclays Manager of the Season award.

However, his time in charge would come to an end on 25 January 2021, with Chelsea in ninth. Later that year, Lampard would be inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame.

He returned to management in the Premier League with Everton, when he was appointed successor to Rafa Benitez on 31 January 2022, going on to ensure the club's top-flight status.

Lampard left Everton in January 2023 and three months later, agreed a second spell in charge of Chelsea until the end of the season.
