Frank Lampard and Jody Morris are both doing well in charge of Chelsea, a club they both played for.

Lampard has barely just over a year’s experience as a manager, having coached Derby County last season. The Blues boss worked under so many managers and he has admitted how he learnt from every one of them.

And now, Lampard has now revealed that a Chelsea player has that same desire to learn about the tactical side of the game.

When asked which of his players could become managers, Lampard chose Jorginho as he said: “Jorginho has recently become vice-captain and part of the reason for that from my point of view was that he thinks [about] the game, he’s a winner, forthright with how he is in the dressing room.

“But he’s a thinker. When you change something he wants to ask a question and he’s always listening and asking so I think he could have a great chance [to become a manager] because he’s always taking on information.”

Jorginho has been very impressive for Chelsea this season, and the Italy international has gone from being a boo boy to winning the hearts of every Chelsea fan.

 Explaining why Lampard chose Jorginho as vice-captain, Lampard said: “Jorginho is a character, a driver and that is very evident to see on the pitch.

“He wants to win, I know that should be the basics for everyone but to show it in everything you do is important and I think he does that.

“From pre-season, he’s been one of the leaders in the dressing room and on the pitch.

“I’m pleased with him and the young players need to look up to that kind of attitude that he has daily.”
