Chelsea Looking At 'German-Speaking Managers'

Amid Frank Lampard's struggles as Chelsea boss, the club's owners are reportedly looking at "German-speaking managers" as they seek to potentially replace him.

Lampard is said to be under serious pressure following his side's 2-0 defeat to Leicester City in the Premier League on Tuesday night.

With the Blues having taken just seven points from their past eight matches, the club's owners are now believed to be on the hunt for a potential replacement.

According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea's hierarchy are considering hiring a German-speaking manager to get the best out of the likes of Kai Havertz and Timo Werner, two players who were signed for big money from the Bundesliga last year.

Much was expected of the two Germany internationals upon their arrivals, but both the former Bayer Leverkusen attacker and the ex-RB Leipzig forward have battled to impose themselves in England.

Southampton's Austrian boss Ralph Hasenhuttl is believed to be among the managers being looked at by the Blues' board, along with Leipzig's Julian Nagelsmann and Ralf Rangnick, who is currently unemployed, and Thomas Tuchel.

In addition to how these managers could help the new signings settle in, another reason for them being considered is that bosses who have previously coached in Germany are used to operating with directors of football, with Chelsea adopting similar methods in recent times.

Lampard addressed his future in the wake of his team's loss to the Foxes on Tuesday, admitting it is a situation he cannot control.
