Former Chelsea captain and current Aston Villa assistant manager John Terry has spoken exclusively with the Daily Mail, lavishing praise on his past-teammate Frank Lampard ahead of his expected announcement as Blues boss.
 
After the season he has had with Derby and with Chelsea’s transfer ban in place, there is no-one better equipped than Frank to succeed at Chelsea. It is perfect timing for him and the club.”
 
Frank was under pressure to succeed at Chelsea the day he arrived from West Ham and he never hid from that. He revelled in it and went on to become Chelsea’s greatest-ever player.”
 
What made him that player was his desire to drain every ounce out of his body and that of everyone around him in training. Then, when he was done, he’d go out and practise free-kicks and shooting on his own for another half hour.”
 
People would be amazed at his goal return but they just didn’t realise how much dedication was put into that and his whole game. He is just as exacting on himself now as a manager.”
 
The glowing endorsement will further put hype on the reveal of Frank Lampard as the successor to Maurizio Sarri, after Derby reportedly gave Chelsea permission to talk to their former midfielder.
