Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has told former international teammate Frank Lampard to take the vacant managerial job at Chelsea.

While he was on the Instagram Stories of Didier Drogba (Chelsea legend and former Chelsea striker), Rio Ferdinand told Frank Lampard that he should take the Chelsea job and that the West Londoners need him.

Rio Ferdinand and Frank Lampard enjoyed many years of international football together for the Three Lions of England.

Frank Lampard is a former Chelsea midfielder that has attained legendary status at the club following his outstanding contributions to the Stamford Bridge outfit.

The 41-year-old scored 211 goals during his 13-year stay in West London to emerge as their all-time leading goalscorer.

Frank Lampard has impressed a great deal as the Derby County manager after just one season on the job and the ex-England international midfielder is the overwhelming favorite to take the Chelsea job as a replacement for Maurizio Sarri who has gone to Italian champions Juventus.

Derby County are desperate to hang on to the services of Frank Lampard with club owner keen to offer him a lucrative offer worth a whopping sum of £10m over a four-year period.
