According to former Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer, world-class players rarely become world-class managers but Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is an anomaly.

Schwarzer believes Lampard has all the right attributes to succeed as Chelsea boss.

“I always felt whatever he did he’d be a success. Post-football he was a pundit and I thought he was exceptional,” Schwarzer told Goal about Lampard.

“So often we’ve seen in the past world-class players don’t make top-class managers and so far Frank’s the one anomaly. He’s showing that he’s got the potential. His first season at Chelsea I felt he did a tremendous job all things considered and now it’s a different challenge. They’ve got to start well.

“Frank is a legend there, the fans adore him and he will get that extra bit of leeway to deliver. He’s shown all the right attributes to be a success.”
