(CNN)Chelsea has parted company with manager Frank Lampard, the club announced on Monday.

Considered one of the greatest players to have ever played at Stamford Bridge, he left the Blues in 2014 having won three English Premier League titles during 13 years at the club.

The 42-year-old returned as the club's head coach in July 2019.

Lampard enjoyed a successful first season which saw the London club qualify for the UEFA Champions League and reach the FA Cup final.

But after a strong start to the season, the club's form has tailed off.

Lampard leaves with the club languishing ninth in the Premier League following a run of five defeats in the past eight league games.

In a statement, Abramovich said: "This was a very difficult decision for the club, not least because I have an excellent personal relationship with Frank and I have the utmost respect for him.

Lampard is the 12th Chelsea manager to be sacked since Russian billionaire Abramovich bought the club in 2003.

Former Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel is the favorite to replace Lampard at Stamford Bridge.
