Frank Lampard had an incredible debut season with Derby County as he almost led the Rams to the Premier League last season.
The Chelsea legend guided Derby County to the play-off final but only lost to Aston Villa 2-1 in a very tight game.
Despite it being his first season as a manager, Chelsea chiefs have been impressed with Lampard and he’s currently the first choice to take over from Maurizio Sarri who left the Chelsea job to manage Juventus.
Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has now backed Lampard to take the job and insists that the former Chelsea midfielder deserves it.
“They should do it! I think he will get it,” the former Manchester United defender said on Drogba’s Instagram story.
“Is he talking? I think he’s talking and I think he’s gonna get it. If he’s talking, he’s getting the job because he can talk.
“Frank, take the job man. Take it, Chelsea need you.
“I don’t care, he’s my friend. He should get the job, he deserves it.”
Former Chelsea and Manchester United goalkeeper Mark Bosnich has urged Lampard to take the Chelsea job and revealed that he may end up regretting turning down the manager’s job at Chelsea if that is what he decides to do.
“I think it’s a great move for both parties,” Bosnich told talkSPORT.
“From a Chelsea perspective, the fact they’re banned for two transfer windows and have lost their best player in Eden Hazard, it may not be a smooth ride for them.
“But having a club legend will give them some breathing space.
“And for Frank, it’s a fantastic move.
“He not only was a wonderful player, he is a wonderful man as well and I think this will be ideal for him.”
