The club legend was relieved of his duties after a string of poor results saw Chelsea drop to ninth place on the Premier League table.

However, despite being sacked by the London club, Lampard later released a classy statement.

"It has been a huge privilege and an honour to manage Chelsea, a club that has been a big part of my life for so long," he wrote in a post on Instagram.

"Firstly, I would like to thank the fans for the incredible support that I have received over the last 18 months. I hope they know what that means to me. When I took on this role, I understood the challenges that lay ahead in a difficult time for the football club.

"I am proud of the achievements that we made, and I am proud of the academy players that have made their step into the first team and performed so well. They are the future of the club.

"I am disappointed not to have had the time this season to take the club forward and bring it to the next level.

"I want to thank Mr Abramovich, the board, players, my coaching team and everyone at the club for their hard work and dedication, especially in these unprecedented and challenging times.

"I wish the team and the club every success for the future."

Former Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel is the favourite to take over from Lampard, but you can see some other potential candidates who could replace the Englishman at Stamford Bridge in the gallery below!
