Chelsea legend Frank Lampard was appointed Chelsea boss last summer following an impressive spell at Derby, which saw the Championship side reach the play-off final.
According to Lampard, he believes he can succeed as a manager like he did as a player — when he won three Premier League titles and the Champions League.
Lampard said, according to The Sun: “You wouldn’t have dreamed the Chelsea job would come along after a year at Derby.
“Was it the right decision to take the job so early?
“It was a question posed at the time of my appointment — whether it was too early in my development as manager.
“But I didn’t ask myself whether it was too early. I had confidence in my ability.
“But I understand why it was the first question.
“I had a wonderful playing career with Chelsea but that has nothing to do with my new role as manager.
“This is a challenge I had no fear of taking and have no fear of doing.
“My objective is simple — to be as successful as it is possible to be at Chelsea.
“If I don’t, then that should not influence what I achieved in 13 years as a player.
“But my intention is to succeed as a manager the way I succeeded as a player.”
