Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is looking to replace Frank Lampard with a German-speaking coach.
Lampard has had a torrid outing with the Blues with their latest setback coming against Leicester City on Tuesday night with the Athletic reporting that the club would be shopping in Germany if they are to look for a replacement for the Englishman.
According to the report, the Blues’ possible candidates to take over are mostly fluent in German, a key characteristic for the club’s hierarchy, who have a desire to “tap into the influence of the Bundesliga” with their next appointment.
The list of the possible candidates for the job includes Julian Naglesmann, Thomas Tuchel, Ralf Rangnick, and Southampton’s Austrian boss Ralph Hasenhüttl.
The main reason why the club will be deciding to go German is the presence of massive-money signings Kai Havertz and Timo Werner, who have both struggled to hit the ground running in their debut campaign in the Premier League.
Three of the four aforementioned coaches have also worked with Werner, who has now gone 11 league games without a goal.
