Former Chelsea defender John Terry has thrown his weight behind Frank Lampard for the vacant managerial job at Stamford Bridge.

In his recent interview monitored by the Daily Mail, John Terry revealed that his old Chelsea pal is the right man for the job of replacing Maurizio Sarri as the new Blues manager.

According to him, Frank Lampard would be demanding of himself in the Chelsea job just like club owner Roman Abramovich.

John Terry is the assistant manager at newly promoted Premier League side Aston Villa at the moment and he recently signed a new contract at the Midlands club.

He came up against Frank Lampard during the English Championship playoff final when Aston Villa and Derby County met.

Derby County manager Lampard was unable to prevent the Rams from suffering a 2-1 defeat to Terry and Aston Villa sealed promotion to the top flight of English football as a result.

Frank Lampard is expected to be named the new Chelsea manager later this week after Derby County gave the Blues the permission to speak to him.

Derby County will receive £4m in compensation from Chelsea for Frank Lampard who’s expected to sign a three-year deal worth £16.5m over that period.
