- Lampard needs to start very well at Chelsea.
- The 40-year-old will have the backing of the entire Chelsea board.
Lampard started life has a manager in the Championship with Derby County, he led the Rams to a sixth-place finish and a Premier League playoffs only to lose to Aston Villa.
However, there have been speculations that their all-time leading goal scorer will be the replacement to Maurizio Sarri, who is Juventus bound.
Maurizio Sarri guided the Blues to a third-place finish in the League, as well as the Carabao Cup final and the Europa League Cup. His achievement though could not guarantee his stay as Chelsea’s manager.
Chelsea recently sold their most valuable asset that is Hazard and is serving a two transfer-window ban. The Blues don’t have any other choice but to turn to their horde of young talents and develop them.

However, former Blues player Ron Harris is wary of Chelsea supporters as Lampard may need to hit the ground running immediately with good results if he is to prove himself as a fan favorite.
Harris though feels if appointed, unlike his predecessor Lampard will be given enough time to settle in by the Club executives.
Harris on Love Sport Radio said:
“If you look at the top-class managers who have been there, they don’t seem to last more than two years,” .
“[But] if Frank did decide to come, I think things would change a little bit and they would give him some time, especially if the transfer embargo comes into force.
“The question is would [Chelsea supporters] be happy if it takes two or three years to bring these [young] fellas through?
“No disrespect to the players out on loan, there is a big, big difference between playing in the lower divisions and having to come and play in the Premiership.
“As much as some of the lads have done ever so well at Derby on loan, I think it is a different ball game.
“I’m not knocking sides in the lower divisions, but there are half a dozen tremendous sides in the Premiership. Sometimes supporters can get very impatient.”
Former Blues managers Ruud Gullit and Roberto Di Matteo consider Frank Lampard as the ideal personnel for the managerial role at Chelsea, reported earlier by Savechelsea.net.
