Vincent Kompany has backed Chelsea to hire Frank Lampard as their manager.
A return to Stamford Bridge is on the cards for Frank, who is currently the boss of Derby. It seems now a matter of when and not if with reports of the return getting stronger everyday.
And now, Frank’s former Manchester City teammate and Citizen legend Vincent Kompany has supported the decision to hire Lampard.
Speaking at his presentation as Anderlecht’s new player-manager on Tuesday, Kompany told reporters: “Sign him up. He is the man!
“Not only is Frank a great guy but someone who I learned so much from at a stage in my career. He was a bit older when he joined Manchester City and Frank was an incredible professional.
“What he brought at the time, he stepped the level up for everyone else so I know the impact of Frank Lampard on a team and I’m trying to have the same impact when it comes as an older player for Anderlecht.
“He’s up there with the most intelligent players so it’s a natural match with Chelsea, I completely support him.”
Chelsea fans, get excited!
