Frank Lampard’s history with Chelsea is unparalleled, as the club legend is seen as one of the greatest players to have played for the club.

However, his managerial stint at Stamford Bridge didn’t last long as he was manager of the club for only 18 months.

Lampard has often reiterated his love for Chelsea, and even upon his dismissal, he has recently admitted that the club will forever be in his heart.

Meanwhile, former Manchester City winger Trevor Sinclair, has backed Lampard to go on and coach Chelsea rivals Tottenham, who are yet to appoint a permanent manager since the sacking of Jose Mourinho.

“One that I don’t think has been mentioned much – and he does have connections to the club through his family – is Lampard,” Sinclair told talkSPORT.

“Harry Redknapp [Lampard’s uncle] has been manager of the football club, Jamie Redknapp [his cousin] has played there, he’s a London lad.

“He didn’t do much wrong at Chelsea.

“I think it’s a good fit. He did a good job, especially in the first season at Chelsea when they had the embargo, they just lost their best player.

“He went in there and steadied the ship, gave a lot of young players an opportunity. Tottenham have this unbelievable academy, surely you want to bring young players through like that?

“Frank is the ideal man, especially when he’s got Jody Morris with him. If Rafa [Benitez] can go to Everton, why can’t Frank go to Tottenham? If you ask the fans, they’ll want a young, up-and-coming manager who is hungry.

“He still loves Chelsea, but he’ll be disappointed with the way that ended. He’ll want to go to a big club and prove his worth.”
