Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is under huge pressure as Chelsea boss following the 2-0 defeat to Leicester on Tuesday night.

Chelsea have now lost five of our last eight league matches and have slipped to eighth place in the table after 19 games.

Former Chelsea player Frank Leboeuf has revealed the perfect replacement for Lampard.

Thomas Tuchel, Massimiliano Allegri, Brendan Rodgers, Ralph Hassenhuttl and Julian Nagelsmann have all been linked with the Chelsea job but Leboeuf insists Rodgers is the perfect guy for the job.

According to Leboeuf, Rodgers understands English football better than the rest of the candidates.

“Brendan Rodgers knows English football very well so I think he will be the perfect guy,” the former Blues defender told ESPN FC.

“Allegri knows Italian football, Tuchel knows German football and French football but they’re new in English football.

“There is a very specific philosophy and mentality that you have to have to coach a team in England.

“We can see talent is not enough, you need something special you need a team, you need stamina to keep on fighting every game. You need a character which is missing around Chelsea players right now.

“Brendan Rodgers is fantastic and I would love to see him.”
