Chelsea manager

Frank Lampard has no interest in becoming the new Bournemouth manager, Football Insider understands.

The Sun linked the former Chelsea manager with the vacant post today following the sacking of Jason Tindall.

But a source with knowledge of Lampard’s situation told Football Insider he does not want to be in the running to take over at the Vitality Stadium.

He is keen to assess his options before returning to management after leaving Chelsea last month.

Bournemouth sacked Tindall after six months in charge following a run of just one win in their last eight Championship games.

Coach Jonathan Woodgate will take temporary charge but the club confirmed they want to appoint a permanent replacement “as swiftly as possible”.
