Frank Lampard has named as Chelsea's new manager for this season. And as the new manager, the former Chelsea player surely will make a huge turn over in the Stamford Bridge Stadium as well merging the academy with the first team. According to reports, that will be one of Frank Lampard's strategies to bring back Chelsea to its glory.
The 41-year-old manager appointed as Chelsea's new manager after their former manager Maurizio Sarri decided to leave the club at the end of the last season. Maurizio Sarri's time with Chelsea it's not that bad. He managed to bring Chelsea to win the Europa League trophy over Arsenal at the end of this season. But for the past season, he has a love and hates relationship with several of his players and most of Chelsea's fans. Nevertheless, they demand the manager to depart from the Stamford Bridge at the end of this season.
Good for him, right after the 2018-2019 season ended, he received an offer for Juventus that will bring him back to Italy. Without a doubt, he received the offer and announce his departure from Chelsea. And not long after that, Chelsea is on the lookout for a new manager and Frank Lampard's name became one of the candidates.
The current Derby manager is probably the most favorable candidate as Chelsea's new manager and the club is reportedly has talked with Derby about that, despite the club wants to make him remain at the club for a little bit longer.
Frank Lampard Will Focus On Chelsea's Youth Development
Another report claims Frank Lampard would be planning to focus heavily on Chelsea's youth development. His main purpose is to give the young guns a real chance to break into the first-team squad. And merging the academy with the first-team seems to be the most efficient and effective way Frank Lampard could think of.
If he were to be Chelsea's new manager, Frank Lampard plans to have the academy stars mix with the senior stars at Chelsea's Cobham training complex. He will order the youth coaches to organize the academy sessions before or after the first-team training so he can cast his eye over the youngsters. Frank Lampard intends to watch as many youth games as possible and he would regularly invite academy stars to train with the senior team. His main point is to boost the Blues youth development.
His approach seems to be the opposite of what Maurizio Sarri has been done in the past season. As far as playboy888 apk knows, the former Napoli manager did not watch a single academy training session or Under 23 game during his time at Chelsea. But in Frank Lampard care, academy stars will now eat with the senior team and they will use the first-team gym. Previously they are being housed in their own building, separated from the first-team.
