Frank Lampard has”most of the requirements” to succeed as Chelsea head coach, according to former Blues manager Jose Mourinho.
Lampard took over with Derby at the Sky Bet Championship after one year as a head coach from Maurizio Sarri at July.
Mourinho managed Lampard across two spells at Stamford Bridge, helping the midfielder to eventually become the club’s all-time leading goalscorer.
“One factor is that the participant, another thing is that the manager,” Mourinho said. “The player, I do not believe any Chelsea fan will disagree with me when I state is among the best five most important players of Chelsea background, and likely some will state maybe not top five, possibly leading three.
“Another matter is his managerial career, 1 year of experience at Derby where he revealed great qualities and now he’s Chelsea in his hands.
“He plays big things. He plays Champions Leaguehe played a European Super Cup, he had already big games in his handsand he must grow up with the level of adventures, which I think he can because he’s huge experience.”
“I cannot separate from the fact that soccer was consistently in his life. He was born boy of a participant, he climbed [nephew] of a football manager, he eventually became a participant, he eventually became a top player… I think he has all of the requirements to succeed.”
Lampard has endured a testing start to Stamford Bridge, with Chelsea winning only one of the four Premier League fittings, and losing the UEFA Super Cup final to Liverpool.
