Although Chelsea sacked Frank Lampard after underperforming early in the 2020/21 season, his legacy will not be so quickly forgotten in club history. The owner of the club supported him to succeed in the manager business by giving him enough funds to buy players, but failed to manage them well after getting their signings.
Thomas Tuchel joined the West London team following Frank Lampard's dismissal. The German Tactician was able to use all the players he signed to win two trophies for the club. The former Chelsea legend lacked the ability to control such great players he signed up for.
Both coaches will not be forgotten in club history as they encouraged and promoted academy players to the first team squad.
1. Mount Mason
The English international midfielder was promoted to the first team squad by Frank Lampard after an impressive loan spell at Derby County. He won the best player of the Chelsea squad last season.
The forward was promoted by Frank Lampard in his first season as the club's manager. He was phenomenal for the blues during the Lampard Era, but failed to impress Thomas Tuchel when he took over the club as the new Manager.
Jose Mourinho wasted no time in immediately signing the player he joined As Roma this summer.
3. Reece James
England's international right-back is one of the most valuable defenders in the EPL due to his outstanding performance. The 21-year-old player was promoted to the A team by Lampard in his first season.
4. Billy Gilmour
Defensive midfielder Frank Lampard had an impressive season under his management. Before being loaned to Norwich City, he was part of the team that won the UEFA Champions League for Thomas Tuchel last season.
5. Fikayo Tomori
He was part of the team that helped Frank Lampard achieve his goals in Derby County. The coach was immediately promoted to the A team squad, but was later sold to Ac Milan under Thomas Tuchel.
6. Rashid Anjorin
The young midfielder was promoted to Chelsea's first team by Frank Lampard before being sent on loan to Lokomotiv Moscow under Thomas Tuchel.
7. Trevoh Chalobah
The backstop was promoted to the blues first team squad by Thomas Tuchel and was an outstanding player on the team. He scored a goal for the club in the first UEFA Champions League match for the club against Juventus.
