Ranking every Chelsea boss under Abramovich by PPG: Lampard last

Quick Reads

Frank Lampard‘s status as a Chelsea legend hasn’t been enough to appease Roman Abramovich’s infamously ruthless streak when it comes to pulling the trigger on managers.

The Blues have enjoyed the most successful period in their history under the Russian’s ownership, with Lampard playing a key role in that, becoming the club’s all-time top scorer during his playing days. Having arrived in the dugout during a transfer ban, he leaves with credit for bringing through the academy graduates whilst qualifying for the Champions League.

But the writing has been on the wall ever since Lampard struggled to deliver results since over £200m of investment, and the cold hard statistics aren’t kind to him – he leaves the club with the worst Premier League points-per-game rate of any manager in the Abramovich era.
