Tammy Abraham believes that Chelsea FC should appoint Frank Lampard as their next manager.
The Blues are thought to be close to appointing Lampard as Maurizio Sarri’s successor at Stamford Bridge.
The Italian head coach left for Turin earlier this month to replace Massimiliano Allegri at Serie A champions Juventus.
The former Napoli boss won the Europa League and guided Chelsea FC to a third-placed finish in his debut campaign in west London.
Lampard, on the other hand, led Derby County to the Championship play-off final before a 2-1 loss to Aston Villa.
Abraham was playing for the Villa side that beat Derby to deny Lampard and his squad promotion to the Premier League in his first season as a professional manager.
The 21-year-old has returned to Chelsea FC following his loan stint at Villa and could work under Lampard if the retired England star is appointed as manager.
And Abraham has now endorsed Lampard as the new Chelsea FC boss.
“Yes, if it was him to take over the job, I believe in myself,” Abraham is quoted as saying by the Daily Telegraph.
“There is no better guy [than Lampard] to play under. Someone you have grown up watching, been at Chelsea forever. He knows about me as well. I played against his team in the play-off final.”
He added: “This year is the most important year for us [young players]. It is now or never. There will never be a better time to play the youngsters. Of course the transfer ban is probably not what the club wanted, but I am excited and I am sure the rest of the players are.”
Lampard is Chelsea FC’s record goal-scorer following a glittering career at Stamford Bridge between 2001 and 2014.
The retired Chelsea FC midfielder has been working alongside former Blues star Jody Morris at Derby.
Morris was Lampard’s number two following his stints in charge of the Chelsea FC youth teams.
