Frank Lampard faces Chelsea job threat with ‘board concerned’ over Kepa Arrizabalaga axe

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is reportedly at risk of losing his job this summer with the Blues board not convinced over his management of the squad.

Lampard had his hands tied somewhat in the summer having been unable to bring in any new signings due to a transfer ban.

That ban was halved and the Blues were able to make signings in January however there were no new faces at Stamford Bridge.

Regardless, Lampard still has Chelsea in the top four of the Premier League but the Telegraph claim questions have been raised over his management of his squad.

One key decision by Lampard was to drop goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga with “surprise expressed” at the decision not to recall the Spaniard to face Manchester United.

Kepa has now missed the last two Premier League games with Chelsea picking up just one point across the fixtures against Leicester and United.

The Stamford Bridge outfit paid over £70m for Kepa and it’s claimed that if he does not play it would be harder to sell him.

Lampard will also reportedly come under pressure if Chelsea fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
