Frank Lampard Hired As Chelsea Club's Manager

Frank Lampard

"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Frank and while we would have loved his time at Derby County to continue, to build on the positives we saw last season, the opportunity for him to return to Chelsea as their Head Coach was huge. However, my sole focus is on the job in hand and preparing for the season ahead". "Can you work hard, can you compete, can you get in the first team?"

Chelsea have reportedly opened contract talks with English midfielder Mason Mount, who is set to be offered a new five-year deal by the Blues.

Derby said an undisclosed compensation package had been agreed with Chelsea and wished Lampard well.

It's all change at Chelsea this summer after some major departures from Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea finished third in the league, and also won the Europa League.

Lampard's cousin, Jamie Redknapp, another former England midfielder, said patience would be the key factor.

"I'm very pleased to have Shay as part of the team and not just for what he will bring as a goalkeeper coach, but what he will also bring to the dressing room in a much broader scheme".

"I think Frank will go with a 4-2-3-1", Nicol said. "You have to be realistic".

Lampard's inexperience makes this a risky appointment but given the club's current circumstances, it could be just the move to steady the ship.

"So for me, it's going to be something different and new knowing that he played there and he went into coaching not quite long", Kanu submitted.

West Ham's initial reaction was to tell the Austria global , who signed a new deal five months ago, to honour his contract. In real terms, there was not much difference between Wolves in seventh and West Ham who eventually finished 11.

Lampard is Chelsea's all-time leading scorer with 211 goals in 13 seasons with the club.

"Lamps" will have no such problem.

These are the players who've turned out the most for Chelsea over the last 27 seasons.

"Super Frank" is widely considered one of the greatest players in Chelsea's 114-year history, as well as one of the best midfielders of his generation.

Meanwhile, Lampard has told his players to prove they belong at Chelsea - giving fresh hope to former flops Danny Drinkwater, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Michy Batshuayi among others.

Chelsea's inability to register new players due to a FIFA-imposed transfer ban may help provide further encouragement to their academy prospects, but Lampard does not believe it should be the deciding factor.

He then joined New York City in Major League Soccer in the United States, making his debut in August 2015, before ending his 21-year professional playing career in 2017.

"I think if they were to finish in the top four, that would be an incredible season", said Redknapp.

"I've no pre-conceived ideas, I have got good knowledge of the squad but I need to see them over the next month".
