Tuchel is a figure who has political power over players and wants to control everything.

LONDON - Frank Lampard was finally fired by Chelsea after 18 months as a Blues tactician. In a statement, Chelsea said the results and performance of Lampard's squad did not meet the club's expectations.

Chelsea are now in the middle of the English Premier League with no clear direction to make improvements. Lampard also admitted that he was disappointed with this decision because he felt he was not given enough time this season to be able to raise his team to a higher level.

The news about who will replace him has started to emerge, namely Thomas Tuchel. The former Borussia Dortmund coach was fired by Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in December last year. In fact, reportedly Tuchelakan was offered an 18-month contract as a coach with an option to extend for 12 months thereafter.

The plan, the Blues will announce the appointment of Tuchel as coach before the match against Wolves in the Premier League, Thursday (28/1). Tuchel was not exempt from the quarantine rules for arrivals to the UK. But the English Football Federation (FA) will allow him to attend Chelsea's training center during matches, if the Covid-19 test results show negative results while flying to England, as well as while with the Chelsea squad.

The German coach is indeed the only candidate to replace Lampard. Lampard, who is Chelsea's all-time leading scorer, is enjoying his first season as Chelsea coach, driving his team to the FA Cup final and securing Champions League qualification, relying on academy players.

However, after being awarded more than £ 222 million to buy new players last summer, Lampard failed to bring Chelsea to life. Timor Werner et al are only in ninth place in the standings from 19 matches, 11 points behind Manchester United at the top of the standings, and five points from Liverpool in fourth place.

`` I am disappointed that I have not had enough time this season to take the club to develop and improve to a higher level. When I took this role, I understood the challenges that lie ahead in difficult times for the football club, '' said Lampard as quoted by Skysports , Tuesday (26/1).
