Michy Batshuayi sent a heartfelt message to manager Frank Lampard on Twitter after he was sacked by Chelsea on Monday.
Batshuayi, 27, is a Chelsea centre-forward currently out on loan at Premier League rivals Crystal Palace.
The Belgian striker has uploaded a message on social media in response to Lampard’s dismissal at Stamford Bridge.
“Good luck for what’s next coach. Thank you for the advices and some great memories, wishing you nothing but success in the future,” he wrote on his personal Twitter account.
Chelsea announced yesterday that Lampard had been sacked after 18 months in charge as Blues head coach.
Lampard, 42, guided the club to a top four finish in the Premier League last season, but the team are ninth in the current division standings and are underperforming.
Sky Sports have claimed that Thomas Tuchel will be the next Chelsea manager and that he’ll be appointed before Wednesday’s Premier League fixture against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Batshuayi is one of numerous players out on loan from Chelsea right now, so it’ll be interesting to see if any feature in the plans of the next manager.
The likes of Conor Gallagher and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are two Blues loanees that may have been eyeing a spot in Chelsea’s first-team squad next season, but that will be subject to the new manager’s beliefs.
It looks like it’ll be up to the players to try dig out a result midweek in a pivotal league clash at home to Wolves, which is a game they need to win regardless of the managerial situation going on around them.
