The Chelsea legend has now attributed his dismissal to a breakdown in communication between him and his superiors, as Daily Mail reports.

At the end of my time at Chelsea, I lost communication with important people above me and I should have tried to keep more.

Lampard managed to guide Chelsea to a top-four finish and the FA Cup final in his first season in charge. He did this despite the club facing a transfer ban and still suffering from the loss of its best player, Eden Hazard.

But his second season wasn't as promising, leading to the then-owner Roman Abramovich cracking the whip on Chelsea's all-time top-scorer.

The 44-year-old was appointed as Everton's manager last season, where he was involved in a nail-biting relegation battle.
