Chelsea fans call for former player to replace Conte as manager – but it’s not Lampard or Terry

Chelsea fans have called for Jody Morris to be named the club’s caretaker manager until the end of the season following last night’s abysmal 3-0 home defeat against Bournemouth.

Following a dip in form since the turn of the year, it was to get even worse for the Blues last night as Eddie Howe’s side ran out comfortable winners following three second-half goals.

The defeat now leaves Antonio Conte’s side in fourth, two points ahead of Spurs in fifth.

Given the Italian’s comments on the club’s transfer policy over the past month, many feel that the Italian will not be at Stamford Bridge come the start of next season.

Although the ex-Juventus boss signed a new deal with the club in the summer, talk of him going back to Italy with AC Milan or the national team has continued to hit the headlines.

With Chelsea now 18 points behind league leaders Manchester City, as well as Barcelona to come in the Champions League, a number of fans have called for change at the club.

Many feel Conte should now lose his job and Under-18s manager Morris be handed the job until the end of the season.

The former Blues player, who made his debut for his boyhood club as a 17-year-old, has done a fantastic jobs with the club’s youngsters since his appointment as manager in 2016.

Prior to that appointment, the ex-midfielder had returned to the club in 2013 to assist Joe Edwards with the Under-21s.

As Morris is a true blue, a number of fans feel he should be handed the top job at the club for the remainder of the season.

With some fans suggesting the team would play better football under the 39-year-old, some have even called for Frank Lampard to assist Morris.

Here’s the best reaction from the fans on Twitter.

Do you think this is a over reaction by the fans? Or is it fair to let go of Conte and replace him with Morris? Let us know in the comments section below.

  1. This is an overreaction from chelsea fans. How many worse seasons did liverpool got under klopp before now? Conte worse season is still better than 2011/2012 season where chelsea won the champions league. Why not allow the coach the time that to put this unnecessary pressure and ideal suggestions. #contealltheway
