Frank Lampard has been called the worst manager in Premier League history following his disastrous Chelsea return after being sacked by Everton.
The 44-year-old jumped at the chance to return to Stamford Bridge in a temporary role following Graham Potter’s exit – but has now lost six games in a row.
Having already lost 24 of his 44 games at Everton with 12 wins, rival supporters couldn’t help but slam him after Chelsea lost 3-1 at Arsenal on Tuesday evening (May 2).
One rival fan said: “Frank Lampard by far the worst manager in the history of the premier League.”
A second added: “Frank Lampard is the worst manager in Premier League history.”
A third posted: “Is Frank Lampard pound for pound the worst premier league manager ever? I can’t think of any worse.”
Another disagreed – and said: “The worst manager in the history of football, not only the Premier League.”
With Martin Odegaard scoring twice, Gabriel Jesus joined the party before Noni Madueke grabbed a consolation in the second-half – which didn’t mean much to Lampard and his players.

Having kept Everton in the Premier League in his first season, he was replaced earlier in the current campaign by Sean Dyche – who picked up three wins from his first seven league outings.
With Lampard set to leave his role as interim Chelsea boss in the summer, his next opportunity in the dugout will need plenty of consideration.
