Chelsea winger Willian believes Frank Lampard “would be up to the task” of managing the Blues. Lampard is expected to be named new Chelsea boss after Derby County granted them permission to speak to their former midfielder about the vacancy last week.
Talks are believed to have gone well and Lampard is likely to be in place at Stamford Bridge for the start of pre-season training, with Brazil international Willian backing him to be a success in the role. “He is a legend,” Willian told Football.London.

“He was an extraordinary player for the club, winning every possible title. “He deserves so much respect and backing for what he has already achieved at the club. If Chelsea do bring him in, he will be very welcome.” Willian was pressed on whether he thinks it’s only just a matter of time before Lampard is unveiled as Blues boss, and admitted he didn’t know, but dropped a big hint he expects him to be in charge soon.
He added: “Is he definitely going to be the next manager? I don’t know. But I think he would be up to the task. “He was a great player and he is a great person. He’s only starting his managerial career now, but he has everything it takes to be a success.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
