Chelsea has appointed Frank Lampard as caretaker manager until the end of the season.
Frank Lampard has returned to Stamford Bridge on Thursday as the Chelsea manager following the sacking of Graham Potter.
The former England international previously managed Chelsea for 84 games but was dismissed in January 2021.
His out-of-the-blue return is among the most improbable of the lot.
But Chelsea are still on the lookout for a long-term replacement and former club coach Guus Hiddink claims Lampard should be made permanent manager.
“I would like him to be considered not just as an interim coach, but also to be given the confidence to continue with the project next season,” Hiddink told the Telegraph.
“He knows the club like nobody else and it’s important to give continuity to things. Like anyone, Lampard is going to need time. Chelsea have invested a lot of money but now need to adapt to an idea.
“He had just started his coaching career and now he’s had more experience, he’s more and better prepared. Let him work! I know him and I think he is the right person.”
