- Roman Abramovich appointed Frank Lampard as Chelsea manager during the summer of 2019
- Lampard was axed from the plum job after spending just 18 months at the position
- Reports have it that the club owner never spoke with the manager during his time
Reports have it that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich never spoke with Frank Lampard during his 18-month spell as manager of the club.
Lampard was appointed manager of the club in the summer of 2019 but poor run of results saw him face the axe at the Stamford Bridge outfit.
He became the 14th manager to be fired since the Russian billionaire acquired the club, but among the cheapest as he was paid just £2million in compensation.
And a report in the Telegraph claims Abramovich never personally spoke to Lampard during his year and a half managing the club.
Instead all communication came via his right hand woman Granovskaia, who effectively runs the club for Abramovich
And new Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has stated that it is almost impossible for the Blues to win the Premier League title this season, adding that a top-four finish might also be beyond them.
He was appointed the west Londoners' new boss on Tuesday, January 26, replacing Frank Lampard who was sacked earlier on Monday.
Lampard's axing came on the backdrop of Chelsea's poor run of results especially in the domestic scene that saw them slip to ninth on the standings.
And German tactician Tuchel was in charge of his first game at the club on Wednesday night, January 27 when they played a goalless draw with Wolves at the Stamford Bridge.
He then recorded his first win as Chelsea manager following the 2-0 win over Burnley at Stamford Bridge.
The German gaffer made several changes to the starting XI as Marcos Alonso returned to the squad since October.
Christian Pulisic, Kai Havertz, Kourt Zouma and Ben Chilwell were all left on the bench for the encounter.
