Ipswich Town must now start preparing for life in League One when their poor season in the Championship comes to an end against Leeds United on Sunday.
Paul Lambert’s side sit rock-bottom of the table on just 28 points, with the Tractor Boys seeing their relegation confirmed in mid-April.
The relegation means Ipswich’s 15-year stay in the second tier is set to come to an end, as Lambert failed to steer his side clear of the drop after Paul Hurst was sacked back in October.
Ipswich captain Luke Chambers has been a regular in the struggling side this season, and he has now spoken out on the club’s situation after an extremely difficult season.
“It’s a disaster what’s happened. A disaster – football wise it is,” he told the club website.
“I’m the leader of the team and I’ll always keep going but I’m being honest again, I can’t wait for the season to be over.
“Everyone’s position should be questioned. I’m no different.”
Chambers has made 41 appearances this season, having been at the club since 2012.
These are strong words from Chambers. He is holding nothing back about the damaging impact relegation has had.
It looks as though this summer will now see a mass clear-out at Portman Road, with much of this relegated squad facing uncertain futures at the club.
However, Ipswich should be looking to keep Chambers at the club, as his experience and leadership qualities will undoubtedly help the club in the third tier.
