Chelsea favourite Claude Makelele believes Frank Lampard is ready to ‘bring success’ to Stamford Bridge ahead of his proposed back to the club.
Lampard has emerged as the clubs number one transfer target this summer after Maurizio Sarri left the club and signed for Juventus, with Roman Abramovic keen to bring back his former star.
And now Makelele has joined a number of former players to come out and admit that Lampard is the perfect man to lead the Blues and will bring some success back to the club.
Asked why the Derby boss, is the best candidate for the role, Makelele replied on the TalkSport website: “For me, it’s good the ex-legends come back to the club. I hope so.
“I’m sure he wants to give everything for Chelsea. So, of course, I’m happy for this idea of the club to bring back a legend. He’s ready. He knows what is needed to bring success to the club.
“Frank is someone who is very professional, he focuses on details, focuses about the love he gives for Chelsea. I’m sure he will be a great manager for Chelsea.”
Meanwhile, Petr Cech has claimed that Lampard is one of several candidates for the job at Stamford Bridge.
Recent reports even suggested that Lampard had already agreed a massive £5.5 million-a-season deal to make that special return, with the compensation package with Derby the only thing holding up a move.
But now it seems that he is not the only man in the running to take over after Cech opened up and announced there are a number of other names in talks.
He told Czech News Agency: ‘The club has identified several candidates, the situation is open, ‘Frank is one of them. Before the first team begins preparations we want to solve the issue of the new manager.
‘The most important thing is to choose a new manager, it will be crucial in the context of further work.
‘The coach will have ideas for the team, we will be completing the team for next season. He will have to look at the players and decide who will go to Japan.’
