The Blues have parted ways with the English manager on Monday, after 18 months at the helm of affairs
Football enthusiasts in Nigeria have taken to social media to react to the dismissal of Frank Lampard as Chelsea manager.
Lampard, who returned to Stamford Bridge as a manager in July 2019, was sacked on Monday due to the club’s poor run of results in the Premier League.
According to Goal, although Chelsea advanced in the FA Cup on Sunday following a 3-1 win over Luton Town. The Blues are ninth in the English top-flight table with just two wins in their last eight league matches.
Lampard’s sack did not come as a surprise to Nigerians because they believe the club’s ambition is paramount even though the former club captain needed more time to succeed

Really sorry for Frank Lampard. He is still going to be a great coach. He needs more time.

I don’t pity Frank Lampard cos he did worse as a player to play a role in jeopardizing and frustrating poorly-performing managers and getting them sacked. He’s lucky he even had players and back room staff members who respected him.

Chelsea supporters will probably be having conversations about Tuchel (or whoever comes in) 18 months from now, maybe sooner.
The club has to stick to its guns at some point.

Thank you Lampard, wish you the best of luck. My opinion, good decision for everyone involved. At @ChelseaFC the standard is high and that’s the way it should be.

I believe every manager needs some time. He got good players. They just need time to gel. But I guess Chelsea does not have patience. I wish the next coach luck.#EPL #GloryGloryManUnited#ChelseaFC
