Lucien Favre was Newcastle's favorite to become the leader of the Saudi-led project, but now reports in England suggest that the Chelsea legend Lampard is now a joint favorite for the job. This is the latest information in the race to manage 'The Magpies', as reported by 'The Telegraph'. The latest news suggested that Steven Gerrard rejected the job.
The former Chelsea manager and captain could be the 'big name' Newcastle's board was looking for. Tuchel replaced Lampard at the 'Blues', taking the team created by the England legend to Champions League glory.
Lampard is currently waiting for new job offers. Lampard is a man with lots of experience in the Premier League as a player and as a coach, which is one of the main reasons why he is being considered.
It seems like Paulo Fonseca is now out of the race. Steve Bruce remains in charge at the moment, with the pressure of seeing new candidates emerging to get his job in the news every day.
