Chelsea legend and manager Frank Lampard has opened up about his decision to take the job as head coach at Chelsea last summer.

Lampard bravely left Derby County last summer to take over from Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge.

“My objective is simple, to be as successful as it is possible to be at Chelsea,” he said in a book, The Boss cited by The Mirror.

“If I don’t, then that should not influence what I achieved in 13 years as a player. But my intention is to succeed as a manager the way I succeeded as a player.

“You wouldn’t have dreamed the Chelsea job would come along after a year at Derby.

“Was it the right decision to take the job so early? It was a question posed at the time of my appointment - whether it was too early in my development as manager.

“But I didn’t ask myself whether it was too early. I had confidence in my ability.

“But I understand why it was the first question. I had a wonderful playing career with Chelsea but that has nothing to do with my new role as manager.

“This is a challenge I had no fear of taking and have no fear of doing.”

Lampard has led Chelsea to 4th position in the league, promoting academy players along the way.
