Lampard's status as a Chelsea icon 'remains undiminished' despite sacking, says Abramovich

 The Blues owner has wished a club legend well for the future after deciding to make a change in the dugout midway through the season

Roman Abramovich says Frank Lampard's status as a Chelsea icon "remains undiminished" despite his dismissal, and has thanked him for his work at Stamford Bridge over the last two years.

Lampard's 18-month reign in the Chelsea hot seat came to an end when he was sacked by the club on Monday morning.

The 42-year-old guided the Blues to a fourth-place finish last season despite being hampered by a transfer ban, but was unable to build on that platform in the first half of the 2020-21 campaign.
