EPL: Boehly brought Lampard back to destroy his reputation – Ex-club owner, Jordan


Former Crystal Palace owner, Simon Jordan has told Frank Lampard to leave Chelsea immediately to avoid further damage to his reputation as a legend.

Lampard was sacked during the tail end of Roman Abramovich’s reign at Stamford Bridge. However, he was called upon by the current American owners to serve as an interim manager pending the appointment of permanent boss following the dismissal of Graham Potter.

But the former Chelsea midfielder and all-time goalscorer has lost all five of the games he has taken charge of

Jordan believes that Todd Boehly did not bring back Lampard as an opportunity for the 44-year-old but to destroy his reputation and put his managerial career to bed.

Before returning to Chelsea, Lampard was also sacked by Everton following a series of defeat

“You don’t just settle into the outcome that you’ve got and say, ‘I’ll bring a legend back so I can destroy his reputation as well.

‘”He [Lampard] thinks it’s an opportunity. I’ll put him in the firing line, he can stick his head in the lion’s mouth, and we can all sit there and laugh at him as well’.”
