Five managers have been identified as a possible replacement for Frank Lampard as his Chelsea team seems to sink down the league.
Two premiership coaches Brendan Rogers and Ralph Hasenhuttl have made the cut.
The pressure is gradually mounting on Lampard after Chelsea lost 2-0 to Leicester City last night.
In Case You Missed:
The defeat marks their fifth in eight games taking them to the 8th position on the log with 9 points behind the league leaders.
More than 200 million pounds was spent during the summer to bring in new faces to beef up the squad.
Abramovich is impatient and by now Lampard may be aware that his job is on the line.
Apart from the two premiership coaches, Abramovich is believed to have investigated Massimiliano Allegri, Julian Naglemann, and Thomas Tuchel to take up the job if Lampard is axed from the team.
Abramovich has been the owner of the club for 18 years and Lampard happens to be the 10th substantive coach for the club in his era.
