See The Problems Frank Lampard Will Face If He Becomes Chelsea Manager , Chelsea have a Champions League nightmare waiting for their next manager , SportsMail reports.

The Blues , who want Frank Lampard to replace Maurizio Sarri , will return to Europe’s top competition next season , but a transfer ban imposed by FIFA means they cannot make any new signings.

Although there will be plenty of talent returning to Chelsea

from various loan spells this summer , many of those players will not meet the UEFA criteria for ‘home-grown’ players.

This will leave Sarri’s successor to work with fewer than 25 senior players in the Champions League , where restrictions are tighter than in the Premier League.

Eight of the 25-man squad for UEFA competitions must classify as ‘home-grown’ and four of those eight must be ‘club-trained’.

Tottenham manager , Mauricio Pochettino , was furious about the rules last season when he came to regret omitting Juan Foyth from the group stages to meet the quotas.
