Lampard Plans to Do Away with 8 players After Their Last Defeat
Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard wants eight players of the club to leave Stamford Bridge, according to The Sun.
Lampard was angered after his side crashed to a 3-0 Champions League last-16 first-leg defeat at Stamford Bridge to Bayern Munich on Tuesday.
Chelsea goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga, who has recently lost his starting place to Willy Caballero is among those the former England international no longer needs at the club.
The Englishman wants to overhaul the club and bring in his own reinforcements.
Others are midfield pair Ross Barkley and Jorginho.
According to the newspaper, Lampard also wants left backs Marcos Alonso and Emerson out while Kurt Zouma, Willian and Pedro will be assessed between now and the end of the season.
With the heavy defeat to Bayern, Lampard realized that the squad requires significant changes in order to return to the top level and challenge for trophies.
He is likely to buy four more players, with Leicester City’s left-back Ben Chilwell and Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak topping list of his choices.
