Chelsea are currently without a manager since Maurizio Sarri left the club to join Juventus.

A number of names have been linked with the Chelsea job, but Chelsea legend Frank Lampard remains the favourite to land the job.

Chelsea fans are eager for the appointment of the new manager and many are hoping it’ll be Lampard who will be given the job.

Chelsea legend Marcel Desailly is backing Lampard to take the job and believes Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich always tend to make the right decision. Desailly believes Abramovich has a proven record of getting managerial appointments right and should be trusted in appointing Lampard.

He told the Evening Standard: “We need to understand and to trust the fact that every single time Abramovich or the management of Chelsea have been able to get the correct coach to go for victory.

“Europa League this year, third position, we were not very pleased about the way Chelsea played this year but how do you want them to go forward and win? There are two crazy teams [in front]: Liverpool and City.

“Sarri, they found him from somewhere, so I’m sure they will find another coach, now that they cannot buy new players, who has a good philosophy to use the players that they have at the moment, from Pedro, to Willian, to [Olivier] Giroud, to have a better tactical setup.”
