Chelsea appointed Frank Lampard as caretaker manager until the end of the season on Thursday.
Lampard is expected to take training on Thursday afternoon and be in charge for Chelsea’s next game at Wolves on Saturday after agreeing a deal to return to his former club.
Nothing has been discussed about Lampard staying beyond the summer with the process for identifying and appointing a full-time head coach continuing.
Lampard was at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night to watch Chelsea’s goalless draw against Liverpool just 48 hours after Graham Potter was sacked.
Lampard, Chelsea’s record goalscorer, was dismissed as head coach at Stamford Bridge in January 2021. He then took over at Everton but lost his job in January after less than a year in the role.
