Chelsea officially appointed the former midfielder Frank Lampard as manager for a three-year contract.

Lampard, 41, was previously a manager at the Derby County club who competed in the Championship – one caste under the English Premier League.

He was replaced by Italian manager Maurizio Sarri, who left Stamford Bridge in June to become manager at Juventus.

In his first year as manager of Derby, Lampard managed to lead the club to the deciding round (play-off) championship where they lost to Aston Villa – who will compete in the Premier League 2019-2020 season.

Lampard, a former England national team player, appeared 648 times in Chelsea and won 11 trophies with them.

He inherited Chelsea who were banned from making a two-season transfer by FIFA and they are appealing to the Sports Arbitration Court.

“I am very proud to return to Chelsea as the main coach,” Lampard said.

“Everyone knows I love this club and I have a history with him. But my focus is on this work and preparing for the upcoming season,” said the former player who began his career at the West Ham United club.

This appointment came nine days after Derby County gave Chelsea permission to speak with Lampard, and 18 days after Sarri left Chelsea.
