Why Frank Lampard must take the Chelsea job without hesitation

Lampard

And, while club legend and Derby County manager Frank Lampard remains the hot favourite, there is concern within the boardroom that the Englishman is not yet ready for such a high profile job.

Chelsea have always been linked with a move to appoint legendary midfielder and all-time top goalscorer Lampard, although he has only just finished his first 12 months as a senior manager after his Derby County side were beaten by Aston Villa in the Championship play-off final last month. The Englishman, who is a popular figure at Stamford Bridge, has just completed his first season in a managerial role.

There continues to be speculation over the Chelsea manager's job amid reports that Maurizio Sarri is set to leave for Juventus.

There are a lot of opinions about whether or not Lampard would be a good fit as a manager at Stamford Bridge, some say it'll be too much for him to handle in just his second season, and others think he'll be ideal for the job.

The former Chelsea midfielder may be loved by the Stamford Bridge faithful following his 13-year playing career at the club. But the world doesn't work like that, and when things start happening, you've got to grab your chances with both hands - they might not come round again.

"He is the flawless choice", he told the Mirror . Having the results they've had, I think it's a good option to have him for another year. "They have tried with all these great managers".

It has been a turbulent season for Sarri as he has fallen foul of the Chelsea crowd, had on-pitch arguments with his players and been accused of being tactically incapable due to his refusal to deviate from his "Sarri-ball" approach.

Frank Lampard and Derby tasted defeat in the playoff final.

"I doubt he'll go back to Chelsea.especially with the transfer embargo and the way the fans treat him last time".

The Italy global ended the season in fine fashion and managed to displace Marcos Alonso in the Chelsea starting eleven after only playing a bit-part role in the first half of the campaign. So he invigorates not only the first-team and the fans but the kids coming through.
