Rio Ferdinand backs Frank Lampard for Chelsea job

12 Jun 2019, 06:00

Rio Ferdinand believes Frank Lampard is the "perfect choice" to take over at Chelsea when Maurizio Sarri leaves the club. 

The Derby manager is among the frontrunners for the Blues job despite having only 12 months experience in the dugout - all in the Sky Bet Championship. 

However, Ferdinand is convinced his former teammate at West Ham is the right man for the job. 

"He is the perfect choice. People talk about experience and what-not but what experience did Pep (Guardiola) have when he went into Barcelona's first team? He trained the younger kids at the club," added Ferdinand," he told Sky Sports

"Frank knows the club and he knows the players and the players will respect him. You can see he can carry himself in a particular way in front of the media and in the football club and he can change things within a season.

"If Chelsea are going to get a ban transfer-wise I don't think they can look anywhere but Frank if I'm honest." 

Lampard led Derby to the championship promotion play-offs final where they lost to Aston Villa.
