Former Chelsea defender BranislavIvanovic believes that Frank Lampard can be a successful manager at Chelsea. He said that he is someone that knows the club very well and that he will know the expectations of the fans.
He said that Frank Lampard has already made a good start to his career as the Chelsea manager and that it is important that fans give him some time to build a team. He said that he has been hindered by the fact that Chelsea has been hit by a transfer ban and that you will have to wait for next season to see how Frank Lampard build his team.
BranislavIvanovic said that for a team to succeed you need to have some stability and that it is not always good to change managers often. He said that it is important that the fans give Frank Lampard enough time to build the team as he wants.
He said that there is already some good players coming from the academy such as Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham and that they will need a couple of signings next season to become a really strong side. He said that this season will be a great opportunity for the youth to gain experience and enough playing time in the Premier League.
However BranislavIvanovic admitted that Chelsea are far behind teams such as Liverpool and Manchester City and that they will require substantial investment during the transfer window in order to challenge for the title. He said that the objective of the team should be to finish in the top four this season and why not challenge in the Cup competition.
BranislavIvanovic said that fans should be patient and that they should be judging their new manager next season.
