Frank Lampard is set to become the next Chelsea boss. However, former Blues bosses are split on their vote to instill Lampard .
“He’s definitely the right man, he’s got personality,” Di Matteo told Sky Sports News. “I followed Derby last season and he plays very good football – he has all the experience in the world.”
“It’s a great fit, whether it’s right now or not? Only time can tell. You can’t say it’s too early, you have to give people a chance. He’s got all the tools and it will make a lot of people happy if he is the next manager.”
However, Gullit does not believe Lampard is the right man yet.
“[Lampard] has done nothing yet as a coach.” Gullit told Sky Sports News.
“[Chelsea] gave me this opportunity as well, we won [a lot] so that [inexperience] has nothing to do with it.
“I think it’s important for Chelsea that they have someone in charge they can relate to. I hope also they can get the right people around him who can help him.
“He must not make the mistake to get friends there, he has to make sure he gets some people there who have experience in managing and coaching teams. That will be the best thing for him.”
