EPL: Harry Redknapp predicts Lampard’s future as Chelsea manager

Frank Lampard’s uncle, Harry Redknapp, has said that the former Chelsea star will be able to handle any of the big-name players and have “real authority” in the dressing room, if appointed manager at Stamford Bridge.

Lampard is wanted by the Blues to succeed Maurizio Sarri, who is heading to Juventus.

Lampard only began his managerial carrier last season with one full season at Derby County.

However, Redknapp, who handled Tottenham, West Ham and Southampton, believes the former England international can handle the reins at Stamford Bridge.

“He will have real authority. He won’t stand any nonsense,” Redknapp told The Sun.

“Eden Hazard has left and he is a fantastic player. No disrespect to any of the rest of them who are left, but none of them can look at Frank and think ‘I’m a bigger, better player’.

“He’s been a better player for Chelsea than any of them. That’s not a bad starting point for him. There won’t be anyone there he can’t handle.”

“It could be a fresh new Chelsea. We could see some real young stars emerging.

“They have an incredible academy producing all these great kids – maybe now they are going to get the chance.”
