It seems to be a case of a matter of when and not if Chelsea decide to hire Frank Lampard as their new manager, according to the next Chelsea manager odds. After Italian manager Maurizio Sarri left to Juventus, the club need to appoint a successor that will unite the fans and the club through a transfer window ban, as well as the post-Eden Hazard era.
CFCnet looks at the next Chelsea manager odds as speculation mounts on former Blues legend Frank Lampard – who will Blues fans be looking to see the club appoint next?
The Favourite According to Next Chelsea Manager Odds
The overwhelming favourite according to the next Chelsea manager odds is Frank Lampard, the current boss at Derby County. Odds of 1/20 (1.05) are currently on-offer for the Englishman who impressed in his one and only season as a manager, guiding the Rams to the Championship play-off final.
Former Blues boss Rafa Benitez is coming in strong in second-place with odds of 9/1 (10.0), but clearly a distant second-pick compared to their former midfielder.
What about third-time lucky with an unemployed Jose Mourinho? It’s highly unlikely, but at 14/1 (15.0) it doesn’t seem out of the realm of possibility.
