Legend ‘Lampard will manage Chelsea’ as Morris has message about legends’s possible return to Stamford Bridge
Derby County owner Mel Morris says there has been no approach from Chelsea for Frank Lampard, but does expect to Blues legend to manage his former club one day.
Sarri had a great start to life as boss of the Blues, but over the last few months he has seen performance levels drop and many of his decisions ripped by many pundits and media outlets.
And despite the fact that he managed to get Chelsea back inside the top three spots in the Premier League and also reach two finals, with the Blues firm favourites to win the Europa league at the end of the month, there is much talk that Chelsea will look to axe the Italian if he fails to achieve a trophy this season.
And that has led to speculation that Lampard could make a sensational return to Chelsea as boss at some point this summer window, after impressing at Derby this season with his tactics, man management and results with the Rams.
And although Morris has admitted that there has not been any contact from Chelsea about a possible deal, he does expect Lampard to be boss of Chelsea one day.
Morris told Sky Sports News: “I’m sure there are 40,000 Chelsea supporters who have been dreaming that that will happen, since Frank announced he was going into management. And there are at least 30,000 Derby supporters hoping that won’t happen.
“It’s inevitable Frank will be linked with the Chelsea job, and maybe one day that will happen. But Chelsea are a very professional club, they have a huge game next week, huge in financial terms for the club but also in terms of achievement if they can win that final.
“Frank has done a phenomenal job here, so it’s no surprise if a number of clubs are looking at him and thinking he could maybe do a great job for us one day. I’m not surprised by that – it’s a compliment to Frank.
“There has been no request from anybody to talk to our manager.”
Sarri needs to be given time to change this Chelsea side into the best in the Premier League once again so all the speculation that he could leave the club will not help their results.
However, owner Roman Abramovic is very ruthless and if the Italian fails to win the Europa League, then Sarri will find himself out of the job as the Russian wants success.
But Lampard is not the right man for the job and he is not ready to handle a big club in the Premier League, so if he takes it, the move could be a bad one for his career.
