Former English international Frank Lampard has been removed from his position as Chelsea's coach. The 42-year-old was having a tough campaign with the London side and despite this was an expected ending it is still surprising. For obvious reasons, the club is now looking for replacements and the list of candidates is anything but short.
A few days ago, it was reported that German coaches Thomas Tuchel, Julian Nagelsmann and Ralf Rangnick were potential candidates to replace Lampard. However, they are not alone in their contention and they have some other rivals for the seat in the bench. One of those names is currently in the Premier League but it's someone who few people thought about.
It was rumored that Leicester City coach Brendan Rodgers could replace Lampard and take the role in Chelsea. In case this is true the club will have to run hard negotiations with their counterparts considering a compensation has to be paid, apart from the coach salary. This are especially sensitive points since Rodgers club has been very considered with him.
After leading Liverpool to a narrowly missed Premier League title by 2014 he moved to Scottish giants Celtic. The club doubled his salary to retain him to around $6 million, and Leicester City increased it again when they brought him on board to around $13.6 million. And also, they had paid $12 million to Celtic as a compensation.
