Redknapp backing Lampard for Chelsea job

Jamie Redknapp is backing cousin Frank Lampard for the Chelsea job.

The Derby County manager is favourite for the post after Maurizio Sarri's departure was confirmed yesterday.

Redknapp said: "Frank would be the perfect person.

"Maurizio Sarri is still the manager right now so until that changes if it were to change and if they need a manager next year, they need someone who's going to come in and stabilise the club.

"They have lost their best player (Eden Hazard), and they have got a transfer embargo for two or three windows, so you need someone that everybody loves, and they will give them time."
