Anderlecht player-manager Vincent Kompany has backed Frank Lampard to naturally fit into the head coach role at Chelsea. The Blues have yet to announce a new manager after the departure of Maurizio Sarri but they are close to doing so with Derby County permitting Lampard to hold discussions over the vacancy.
Speaking to Goal.com, Kompany said that he learnt much from the Englishman during the latter’s one-year loan at Manchester City and the Blues should provide from the expertise of the 40-year-old, he told: “Sign him up. He’s the man. I learnt so much from him. He was a bit older when he joined Man City. Frank was an incredible professional, he stepped the level up for everyone else, and I’m trying to have the same impact as an older player. The match is natural with Chelsea. I completely support him.”
