Claude Makelele has given a ringing endorsement of Frank Lampard for the Chelsea FC manager’s job by declaring him as “ready” to take over at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues were left looking for a new manager after Maurizio Sarri opted to leave Stamford Bridge last month to return to his homeland and take over at Juventus.

Lampard has since been touted as one of the leading candidates to take over at the west London club despite his inexperience in the dugout.

The 41-year-old has only one season of managerial experience under his belt after having worked with Derby County last season.

However, former Chelsea FC midfielder Makelele seems to think that Lampard would be a great appointment for the Blues.

Speaking in an interview quoted by the Daily Mirror, Makelele said: “At the moment, nothing is decided. For me, it’s good the ex-legends come back to the club. I hope so.

“I’m sure he wants to give everything for Chelsea.

“So, of course, I’m happy for this idea of the club to bring back a legend. He’s ready. He knows what is needed to bring success to the club.

“Frank is someone who is very professional, he focuses on details, focuses about the love he gives for Chelsea.

“I’m sure he will be a great manager for Chelsea.”

Chelsea FC finished in third place in the Premier League table and won the Europa League in Sarri’s one and only campaign in charge.

The west London side sealed an impressive 4-1 win over Arsenal in the Europa League final back in May as Sarri won the first trophy of his managerial career.

The Blues are currently banned from signing players for two transfer windows after being hit with the suspension by Fifa.
