Frank Lampard has returned to management to take charge of his former club Chelsea; this time on an interim basis, following the sacking of Graham Potter.

Bruno Salter led the Blues against Liverpool, but Todd Boehly and company opted to turn to the more experienced Lampard to over-see first-team affairs until the end of the season. Meanwhile, search for a permanent gaffer will continue in the background.

After Lampard’s return to Stamford Bridge, another former high-profile Premier League legend could return to the touchline.

Ex-Chelsea midfielder Scott Parker was relieved of his duties as Club Brugge manager following the Belgian outfit’s Champions League exit. Benfica knocked out Parker’s men 7-1 on aggregate in the round of 16.

The Champions League regulars from Belgium are not doing great in the league as well, sitting fifth in the Belgian Pro League.

Brugge are now searching for a new manager to take over the helm, and as per Sacha Tavolieri (via the M.E.N), Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is on their list of options.

The former United forward and manager has been out of management duties ever since the Premier League giants parted way with him in November of 2021.

Bar his disastrous start to the 2021/22 season, the Norwegian largely impressed with his man-management and counter-attacking football, and might prove to be a good fit for Brugge and help them return to Europe’s top-tier competition swiftly.

Under Solskjaer’s tutelage, United went 29 away league games unbeaten – the longest run of any team in English football league history. Despite all the strides United have taken under Erik ten Hag, they are yet to come close to replicating that away-from-home form.
