Frank Lampard was sacked by Chelsea on Monday just 18 months into his reign as head coach – meaning the ruthless fine list he introduced at Stamford Bridge could follow him out the door.
Lampard was relieved of his duties after suffering five defeats in his last eight Premier League games, a nightmare run of form which has left the Blues languishing in ninth place.
Thomas Tuchel has since replaced him in the hot-seat and will take charge of his first match against Wolves at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.
The German is bound to make a number of changes in west London as he attempts to stamp his own authority on the side and resurrect their faltering season.

Nevertheless, it remains to be seen whether one of them is the hefty list of fines Lampard created upon returning to Chelsea in 2019.
During his first season as head coach, a printed fine list was leaked online with Lampard’s signature visible at the bottom.
The total list of fines came to a whopping £53,500, with players punished for misdemeanours like wearing the wrong kit and unpunctuality.

If they reported late for training under Lampard, Chelsea stars would be fined £2,500.
However, they would also be fined a staggering £20,000 if they arrived late for the start of the session itself.
Other fines included £5,000 for not travelling back from matches on the team coach and £10,000 for not reporting and illness or injury either before their day off or 90 minutes before training.
It remains to be seen whether new Blues boss Thomas Tuchel keeps that list
