Former England defender, Rio Ferdinand has called on Chelsea to appoint Frank Lampard as the new manager of the club.

Chelsea currently have no manager after Maurizio Sarri returned to Italy to join Serie A champion Juventus last week with Lampard, who is also a legend of the club, is expected to take over the post.

The 41-year-old has reportedly told his club, Derby County that he intends to ‘get home’ to Stamford Bridge if he gets a formal offer and Ferdinand believes his former teammate is the right man for the post.

“They should do it. I think he’ll do it too, “said Ferdinand. “Did he say that? I think if he did, I think he’ll get it.

“If he opens his mouth, he will get the job because he can speak. Frank, take that position. Chelsea need you. He is my friend. He deserves the post and he deserves it. ”

Lampard may be new to the management arena but his performance since taking over at Pride Park in May 2018 can be praised.

He drove the Derby to finish the Champions League in the sixth position and qualified for play-off races and advanced to the finals since 2014 but lost 1-2 to Aston Villa.

The former Chelsea midfielder is strangely out of Stamford Bridge with he holds the club’s most goalscorer record with 211 goals and has won 13 major trophies including the Champions League in 2012.

Former Derby captain Michael Johnson in the meantime demanded Chelsea to show more respect for Lampard.

“There is no direct offer from Chelsea but you can not run away from rumors and it’s probably more than ‘when’ compared to ‘if’,” he said. “From Derby, we want more respect from Chelsea.”
