Former Chelsea and Liverpool defender Glen Johnson has revealed Frank Lampard always had the instinct to be a coach.

Johnson told The Express: “Yeah he always had that coaching instinct, after games, talking to coaches, speaking tactics so I always thought he’d be a manager one day, definitely.

“I was surprised he was given the Chelsea job so soon but I thought he was definitely destined for it in the future.

“Having said that, it was the perfect time for him because of the transfer ban and they would have to give somebody time anyway, so it’s great to see him getting the job done.”
