Frank Sinclair believes Frank Lampard has what it takes to become one of Chelsea’s greatest ever managers.
Sinclair won the FA Cup, League Cup and Cup Winners Cup in his time at Stamford Bridge in the 1990s.
He’s seen the club achieve further success in Europe since that time, but make its way through a series of managers in the process.
He’s exclusively told ZapSportz’s Harry Harris that Lampard could be amongst Chelsea’s best yet, in Harry’s new book ‘The Boss: Chelsea managers from Ted Drake to Frank Lampard’.
Sinclair said: “Now the club have Frank Lampard and under the circumstances – the restraints at not being able to buy players and to rely on the youngsters – he’s done a great job there. He’s worked with the squad he inherited and started really, really well.
“It’s only expected he’d have his ups and downs in such a tricky first season, but he’s come through the tough times and the longer the season progresses the tougher it gets, with the stakes getting higher.
“I’m sure his remit was to finish in the top four if he could, despite how difficult that might be and for most of the season he’s kept Chelsea in that 4th place position.
“He’s been one of the club’s greatest ever players and I’m sure he would like to become one of their greatest ever managers.”
