FRANK LAMPARD'S wife Christine watched on from the stands as the Chelsea boss set a horror unwanted record.
The Blues' 2-0 defeat to Real Madrid means Lampard has lost his first four games in charge since returning on an interim basis.
No manager in Chelsea's 118-year history has ever suffered such a bad start, so the former midfielder now has a place in the club record books for the wrong reason.
Christine was in attendance to watch her husband's side disappoint once again, with a Rodrygo double sealing Real Madrid's place in the Champions League semi-final.
She did her best to support Lampard and looked elegant wearing a black top and blazer paired with jeans.
The TV presenter has been a key supporter of Lampard's career and was frequently spotted in the stands during his playing days.
