Manchester United great thinks Frank Lampard can be Chelsea’s Pep Guardiola

Ancelotti

It is understood that Sarri could be announced Juventus' new manager in the next 48 hours, forcing Chelsea to begin search for his successor in earnest.

Well, according to the Evening Standard, Frank Lampard is Chelsea's number one choice to take over.

Chelsea have added departing RB Leipzig manager Ralf Rangnick to their list of targets to replace Maurizio Sarri this summer.

Meanwhile, highly-rated Ajax coach Erik ten Haag is a 10/1 (+1000) shot to replace Sarri after impressing in the Champions League with his young Ajax side last season.

In an ideal world Sarri would have stuck around for another year or two while Frank found his feet at Derby. However, he was largely not very popular at Stamford Bridge and struggled to win over support from fans of the club.

The former England global led the Rams to the Championship play-off final before a 2-1 loss to Aston Villa at Wembley last month.

Asked whether he felt Lampard was ready for the post after one season as a manager, Drogba responded: "So he is never going to be ready, then?" But if they do appoint Lampard, they might be taking something of a risk on a professional who has no managerial experience in the top-tier. "At a time when managers are scared and under pressure not to play kids, I think it will be refreshing", continued Ferdinand.

"I think he is giving the current Newcastle hierarchy, and any would be potential owners as long as possible to convince him that they can match his ambition and vision for the future". Frank knows Chelsea, knows the players and the players will respect him.
