Frank Lampard set to make shock return to Chelsea as interim manager

Chelsea moved rapidly in an extraordinary attempt to appoint two managers on Wednesday with Frank Lampard and Luis Enrique both holding talks with the club.

In a remarkable development Lampard has been asked to take charge of the club who sacked him two years ago on a caretaker basis for the rest of the season, while the former Spain coach is one of four candidates to succeed Graham Potter on a permanent basis.

Lampard attended Chelsea’s goalless draw with Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday as a guest of the club’s majority shareholder Behdad Eghbali.

Chelsea’s record goalscorer and former manager watched a sterile performance which did little to enhance the credentials of the existing caretaker Bruno Saltor, one of Potter’s assistants who agreed to stay on following his sacking on Sunday, and on Wednesday was asked to replace him.

Chelsea made a breakthrough in negotiations with Lampard leading to confidence that he could be in charge for Saturday’s Premier League visit to Wolves, which us followed by the first leg of a Champions League quarter final against Real Madrid in the Bernabeu next Wednesday.
