Since retiring from playing the Chelsea legend that is Frank Lampard, has made no secret of the fact that he fancies a managerial role in the game.
Lampard, having worked on his coaching qualifications down at Cobham, is perceived by many as being a potential Chelsea manager somewhere down the line, possibly in tandem with John Terry.
But, our all-time leading goal-scorer has to learn his trade and today it has been revealed by the media vehicle, the Mirror that Frank is in the running to succeed Mick McCarthy as the manager of Ipswich Town Football Club.
Our source is inferring that Frank has been interviewed twice and it appears to be a straight choice, for the clubs owner Marcus Evans, between Frank and the manager who led the Scottish side, St Mirren, to promotion last season Jack Ross.
Here at Vital Chelsea, we’re of the opinion that Portman Road could be the ideal place for Frank to start a managerial career, the club has a history of producing great managers with Sir Alf Ramsey and Bobby Robson being two that immediately spring to mind.
Whilst accepting that there will be pressure on Frank to succeed, we’re sure that, if he’s given the job, he’ll be given the time to turn around a club who have been languishing in the championship for far too long.
It appears to us, it could be a marriage made in heaven and we’ve got our fingers crossed that Frank gets the job.
