Real Madrid star Eden Hazard has claimed that Frank Lampard could become one of the worlds very best managers.
There were many in the media who were surprised that we made the decision to hand Lampard the role as coach during the summer, especially as Maurizio Sarri handed the club the Europa League cup and Champions League football, and especially as he had limited time in the game as a boss.
But despite all the criticism at the beginning of the season, the legend has got this very exciting, young side playing some brilliant football and there are many out there that believe that this side could do some amazing things over the next few seasons.
And when asked if he was surprised by Lampard’s impact at the Bridge while on international duty with Belgium, Hazard told reporters that he believes that his former team-mate has the managerial ability to go on and become one of the games best managers.
He was quoted on the Sky Sports website: “No, not at all. I know Frank as a player, not as a manager, but he’s a great guy. He’s showed already after four months that he can be one of the best managers in the world.
“The good thing is that they are playing with young players, young English players. For England it’s good, for Chelsea it’s good. They are lucky to have young players with quality.
“I don’t know [if the transfer ban has actually been good for Chelsea]. Maybe with two or three more players, they would be first. When I saw them play it’s nice, they all play together.
“I still have good friends there. I follow them all the time. They are winning at the moment so I’m just happy for them.”
Look Lampard has enjoyed a very good start to the new season and he has got the lads playing the way fans would like, but the season in long and he needs to make sure that he gets the club back inside the top four this season.
He could become one of the games best coaches, but he needs time, patients and the chance to turn this young side into one of the best in the Premier League.
