    Chelsea have confirmed the appointment of Frank Lampard as their new head coach on a three-year deal.

    The 41-year-old returns to Stamford Bridge following a season in charge of Sky Bet Championship outfit Derby County.

    The former England midfielder has signed a three-year deal to replace Maurizio Sarri after the Italian boss left to join Serie A champions Juventus in June.

    Lampard is Chelsea’s all-time record goalscorer and won 11 major trophies during a glorious 13-year stint in west London.

    “Chelsea Football Club is delighted to announce Frank Lampard as our new head coach,” a statement on the club’s official website read.

    “One of the greatest players in our history during his long and illustrious career, Lampard returns to Stamford Bridge having signed a three-year contract.”

    Lampard joined Chelsea from West Ham United in 2001 and has since gone on to make 648 appearances for the Blues.
