Newcastle legend Shay Given has backed Chelsea manager Frank Lampard to become a successful manager at Stamford Bridge.

Given who was Lampard's goalkeeper trainer at Derby County believes that Lampard would have a legendary career as a Chelsea manager if given enough time.

“Frank came into Derby and really hit the ground running. You could tell he was going to do well from the day he arrived,” he says told Goal.

“Now he has had Chelsea in a transitional period, but all the players he has brought through have been fantastic.

“People forget that he dealt with a transfer ban and Eden Hazard - one of the best players in the world - leaving in the summer. To do the job Frank has done at Chelsea has been brilliant.

“You hope he is there for many years. It is great for a young coach such as Frank to be given an opportunity like that and hopefully, he can keep improving and get even better as well. He is a Chelsea legend as a player, and he wants to be a Chelsea legend as a manager.

“His will to work and dedication is unbelievable. Hopefully, he gets the right backing, so he will be a big success.”

Chelsea, under Frank Lampard, are currently in fourth place in the league with ten games to play, three points ahead of Manchester United.
