3 reasons why Chelsea should appoint Frank Lampard as next manager
The situation at Chelsea is gradually approaching crisis as results continue to be hard to come by. The Blues currently risk missing out on Champions League qualification for the second successive season, having fallen to 6th place on the Premier League table.
Confidence has also been short at the Stamford Bridge following losses to Bournemouth (4-0), Arsenal (2-0) and Manchester City (6-0). Maurizio Sarri’s side have also been booted out of the FA Cup after losing 2-0 at home to Manchester United in the fourth round of the competition.
As if that is not enough, Chelsea again lost out on title glory after succumbing to Manchester City on penalties in the Carabao Cup final. There have been reports that manager Sarri has fallen out with some of his players in light of the club’s recent poor form.
However, should the Blues hierarchy decide on a change in managerial direction, Frank Lampard would be the best person for the job. The former Chelsea midfielder is doing well Derby County in the Championship and it would be a great if he gets the nod to manage the Blues.
Here are three reasons why Chelsea should appoint Lampard as their next manager:
#3 He knows the Premier League very well
One of the main reasons why Frank Lampard would be a good fit at Chelsea is because he already knows the Premier League. Many managers have often struggled in the English topflight because they usually need time to adapt.
However, Lampard played in the Premier League for over a decade and would need very little time to get going. At a time when Chelsea is seriously struggling to put results together, the 40-year-old definitely fits the bill.
And, it’s not as if the Blues legend has not earned the right to be considered for the job. After retirement, Lampard immediately proceeded to get his coaching badges and has since done well at Derby County.
If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could transform the fortunes of Manchester United in just two months, then there is no reason why Lampard – who is also a Chelsea legend – cannot do same for the Blues.
