Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been told he needs someone more experienced than Jody Morris as his assistant.
This is according to Paul Merson who believes Lampard should consider hiring former Premier League manager Harry Redknapp as his assistant.
Redknapp, former Tottenham Hotspur boss, is Lampard’s uncle and Merson believes he won’t be a threat to Lampard’s job.
“Frank Lampard needs an experienced coach like Harry Redknapp to come in and help him at Chelsea,” Merson told Starsport.
“Someone he can use as a sounding board who isn’t a threat to his job but has plenty of knowledge and can give him good advice.
“I don’t know how Frank hasn’t already reached out to someone like that and offered them a role at the club.
“You can’t tell me Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t ring Sir Alex Ferguson for advice at Manchester United. Come on.
“Lampard has got to get through the next few matches or he’s in big trouble. Luton in the FA Cup and then Wolves and Burnley at home are massive matches.
“I still think Chelsea should give him time but he needs someone alongside him with more experience than Jody Morris in my opinion.
“The players looked lost against Leicester. I thought Leicester had another couple of gears too. It was so easy for them.”
