Julian Nagelsmann sends message to Chelsea after Frank Lampard is appointed as interim head coach

Former Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann remains keen on becoming Chelsea’s permanent boss in the summer despite Chelsea appointing Frank Lampard as interim manager until the end of the season, according to Sky Germany via Metro.

The report adds: “After sacking Graham Potter on Sunday, Chelsea have held discussions with both Nagelsmann and Luis Enrique this week as they look to secure an immediate replacement.

“But in a surprising move, Chelsea have now turned to Frank Lampard, who has agreed to return to Stamford Bridge as caretaker manager until the end of the season.

“Lampard’s second stint at Chelsea allows the club to prolong their search for their next permanent manager, although it also leaves them open to losing potential targets such as Nagelsmann, who has been linked with Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Tottenham since being sacked by Bayern Munich during the international break.

“However, Sky Germany report that Chelsea’s initial discussions with Nagelsmann have been ‘positive’ and the 35-year-old sees a move to the Premier League as his ‘next goal’.”
