'He can be one of the best managers in the world' - Hazard praises Lampard impact at Chelsea

Eden Hazard believes former team-mate and current Chelsea boss Frank Lampard can go on to be one of the best managers in the world.

There were more than a few eyebrows raised when Lampard returned to Stamford Bridge to succeed Maurizio Sarri in the summer with just one season’s worth of managerial experience at Derby behind him.

His task was made all the harder because of the club’s transfer ban for breaking rules over the signing of foreign players under 18, meaning he had to make do with the players he had.

Lampard, though, has turned a potentially difficult situation into a positive by utilising a number of the club’s young players such as Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori.
