Chelsea allow Maurizio Sarri to join Juventus - Frank Lampard to take over

As Sarri departs, Frank Lampard, the Chelsea legend who now plies his trade as manager of Derby County in the Championship, is being lined up as a replacement with a deal reportedly only days away from confirmation.

There, he narrowly missed out on Premier League promotion while guiding the Rams to a play-off final.

Sarri was apparently superstitious enough that he avoided stepping onto the playing field at all costs, even to the point where it kept him from applauding the fans during road matches.

"The expectation of Chelsea is to get into the Champions League and try to win trophies against the best teams".

The former Napoli boss is reported to have agreed to a deal with Juventus as Max Allegri's replacement which makes the job available at the Stamford Bridge. It seems however, that Sarri will be departing Chelsea right as their fans were warming up to him.

Chelsea, however, reached the League Cup final, which they lost on penalties to Manchester City, before finishing the season strongly. One name that popped up is former Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri, but the chances of him being appointed became slim when he announced an intention of taking a year-long sabbatical.

Frank Lampard has told the Chelsea hierarchy he wants former team-mate and club legend Didier Drogba to join his coaching staff at Stamford Bridge, according to a report.

"I look forward to my new role as an ambassador for social projects to help improve the lives of other people and the next sporting challenge".

"The last 16 years have felt like being in a blender".

The 40-year-old has had just one year in management, but steered Derby to the Championship play-offs in his sole campaign.

"If he feels ready I don't think it is too early". But his proven track record working with talented young players, as shown at Derby last season, is an attractive commodity given the club's looming transfer ban.
