With his good work ethic and ability to thrive under pressure, critics are giving Chelsea’s new manager, Frank Lampard, the benefit of the doubt. While some might argue that he isn’t quite ready to take on a managerial position, others agree (and have high hopes) that his first-hand knowledge and air of authority will be enough to keep Chelsea in top form, with people looking for football tips for betting today finding themselves conflicted as to whether him & side will succeed this season.
Probably one of the biggest concerns at the moment is that this all-time record goal-scorer will have to navigate his way around the transfer ban – which is quite a challenge for a new kid on the block. Lampard doesn’t seem too phased with the ban, however, and according to The Sun, he claims that “the club’s FIFA transfer ban could be a blessing in disguise”.
Apart from his positive attitude and determination to turn something sour to his benefit, club players and fans are in favour of Frank Lampard’s new position for the following reasons:
- 1. He has a strong connection with Chelsea and knows a lot of their players.
- 2. As a player himself, he has operated at the highest level.
- 3. Lampard has proven time and time again that he is excellent at dealing with pressure.
- 4. He will already have players at his disposal that have showed success previously.
- 5. The transfer ban doesn’t seem to be an issue for him.
- 6. He has the tactical knowledge.
- 7. He has a good backing of both players and fans.
- 8. He is passionate about the game and his determination has proven to be unrelenting.
- 9. He epitomises what the club is about.
- 10. He embodies both passion and enthusiasm for the game.
With all eyes on Frank, there’s no denying that he’s going to feel the pressure. But with a reputation for making excellent decisions in heated moments together with his vast tactical knowledge and understanding of the players, there’s a good chance that he’s the best person for the job, despite his young age.
Taking over a club of this magnitude is certainly a big task but those that have Lampard’s back agree that he can handle it, even though this will only be his second managerial role. While he might still be cutting his managerial teeth, there’s no doubt that he can have the same trophy-filled success at Chelsea that he had as a player.
For now, only time will tell if he has what it takes to rebuild the club without tainting his legacy before his time. While many naysayers have their doubts, his supporters make up the majority and he has been given a fair chance to build a rapport between the fans, staff and players.
