Tammy Abraham has taken to social media to thank Frank Lampard who was sacked by Chelsea on Monday.
Taking to Instagram on Lampard's departure, Abraham said: "A role model, a mentor & a great manager. Thank you Gaffer."
"I would like to thank you for everything you and your committee have done for me since the day I arrived. As I told you, it seemed like we had been working together for 10 years. Thank you very much for everything. Legend."
"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.
"He is a man of great integrity and has the highest of work ethics. However, under current circumstances we believe it is best to change managers."
Lampard departs Chelsea after 18 months and his successor Tuchel could be announced as early as Tuesday ahead of their game against Wolves on Wednesday.
