Sky Sports pundit Matt Le Tissier believes Frank Lampard will not turn down the Chelsea job, if offered the chance to manage the Blues.
“I think this has fallen at the right time for Frank and he does look like the right fit for the job,” Le Tissier said.
“Only time will tell [if it’s too early for Lampard].
“Frank has got a huge knowledge of the game from all his years of playing it.
“I think last season would have been a very steep learning curve with what went on in the Championship.
“He managed to guide Derby into the play-offs, they didn’t quite get there.
“I think it is just an impossible one to turn down.
“Given Frank’s history at that club and the chance to manage it, I don’t think you can then take a chance of maybe another two or three seasons in the Championship, perhaps things not going great and all of a sudden you have a bad run as a manager and you get sacked from Derby.
“Is that chance of managing Chelsea ever going to come up again after that?
“I think it is impossible for him to turn it down if it does get offered to him.”
