Chelsea great Branislav Ivanovic is confident his former Chelsea teammate Frank Lampard will be a success at Chelsea, but he has warned the job will always be about getting results.
Lampard took over from Maurizio Sarri in the summer and has got Chelsea playing brilliant football. The Blues are also in the top four, seven points ahead of fifth placed Wolves.
Lampard has achieved all these without being able to sign new players due to Chelsea’s transfer ban.
“Everybody who knows Frank – and I know him very well, which is the privilege of my life – knew he was going to be a success,” Ivanovic told The Athletic.
“If you put Frank in any job, he will be successful.
“The problem with being a manager is you always need results, but Frank as a person and as a man will be successful in any job.
“I’m so happy and proud to see him in the position he is in, and I hope he will have the motivation and the luck to stay at Chelsea for many years.”
