ESPN report that Frank Lampard would not be put off the Chelsea job by the transfer ban – which could benefit two of our most promising youngsters.
While there is no guarantee that Maurizio Sarri will get the sack at the season’s end, Lampard has been linked with the Chelsea hotseat, as it’s mentioned in ESPN’s report.
Chelsea would have few other avenues to go down in the event of Sarri’s departure. Lampard may well be the most suitable man for the job if it were to become available.
The man who captained us to glory in Munich knows better than most what it means to play for Chelsea and would ensure to instil that knowledge into his players.
He has also proven during his short stint at Derby County that he has a great amount of trust in his younger players – with Chelsea having a huge talent pool at this current time.
With ESPN reporting that Lampard would also not be deterred by a transfer ban, it suggests that he would be happy to work with the squad, rather than look to the market.
If that were to be the case, it could prove incredibly beneficial for two of Chelsea’s most talented academy products – Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori.
The pair have been used frequently by Lamps this term, with the former winning Derby’s player of the season award at the tender age of just 21.
Lampard knows what they’re capable of and has already demonstrated the huge amount of faith that he has in the pair of them. If he were to arrive, they would greatly benefit.
There are just too many positives of Lampard’s potential arrival to list, but we feel as though our younger players would be the ones who reap the majority of the rewards.
