Gary Lineker is tipping Frank Lampard to be a success at Chelsea FC and says that his lack of experience won’t be an issue.

Lampard was officially unveiled as the west London club’s new manager last week in the wake of Maurizio Sarri’s departure to Juventus last month.

The 41-year-old joins Chelsea FC after only having notched up a year’s worth of managerial experience with Derby County last season.

Lampard has signed a three-year deal with the Blues and his sights will be firmly set on helping to formulate a title challenge from Chelsea FC next term after they finished third in the table last term.

And former England international Lineker clearly seems to think that Lampard will be a success at Chelsea FC despite his relative lack of experience.

Following the confirmation of Lampard’s appointment, Lineker wrote on Twitter: “Congratulations to Frank Lampard with his appointment at @ChelseaFC. Lack of experience won’t be an issue. If you’ve got it, you’ve got it, and I suspect Frank has it. Wish him well.”

Chelsea FC are currently banned from signing new players after being handed a two-season transfer ban by Fifa.

The west London club won the Europa League last season thanks to a 4-1 win over London rivals Arsenal in the final back in May.
