N’Golo Kante feels that Frank Lampard is the right man for the Chelsea job, as he waxes lyrical about the Englishman’s talents.

“He was here for a long time as a player and won many trophies but now he is back with the status as manager of Chelsea,” Kante told Chelsea’s official website, discussing Frankie’s talents.

“We know all about him as a player so when he speaks about my position as a midfielder, to go forward and get the balance in the team, you listen to him.

“He has good ideas, he wants to play the young players and the older players together to get our target to be in the Champions League.

“Frank knows how to bring the players to their best and we have time to get what we want from this season.”

As a reminder, Chelsea are now just two points ahead of Sheffield United who sit in the Europa League spot.

The Blues are 11th in terms of their form in the last 15 games in the Premier League (6W 3D 6L).
