Chelsea are currently without a manager since Maurizio Sarri decided to quit his role as Chelsea boss and move back to Italy, signing up for Serie A side Juventus.

Chelsea are in a dire situation having lost their manager, club hero Eden Hazard and have also been hit with a transfer ban for two windows.

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard is the front runner for the Chelsea job and the legend has been endorsed by a host of Chelsea legends, former players and former managers.

Former Chelsea goalkeeper and teammate of Lampard, Carlo Cudicini who has been working as the club’s goalkeeping coach, feels a man with obvious connections to Chelsea could prove to be the perfect choice.

The Italian said: “It’s hard to give an opinion until the club have announced a new manager.

“But I know Frank, I played with Frank. I think that, for the club, it would be fantastic. He has just started his career, but in football you can’t really plan much. Sometimes, a chance comes along and if you have the chance, you have to take it.

“Obviously, for the club, he was such an important player and potentially as a coach he can be too. I think he has all the ability to become a great coach, but he has just started. He had an important season at Derby, so we’ll see what happens.

“Given the club’s current situation, any new manager will want to be given time, a precious commodity for coaches – especially in recent years at Stamford Bridge.

“Everyone needs time, not just him. Everyone needs time to put his philosophy in the team. In football, time is a crucial thing.”
