Frank Lampard has "all the conditions" to be successful as Chelsea head coach, according to former Blues boss Jose Mourinho.
Lampard took over from Maurizio Sarri in July after just one year as a head coach with Derby in the Sky Bet Championship.
Mourinho managed Lampard across two spells at Stamford Bridge, helping the midfielder to become the club's all-time leading goalscorer.
"One thing is the player, another thing is the manager," Mourinho said. "The player, I don't think any Chelsea fan will disagree with me if I say is one of the top five most important players of Chelsea history, and probably some will say not top five, maybe top three.
"Another thing is his managerial career, one year of experience in Derby where he showed good qualities and now he has Chelsea in his hands.
"He plays for big things. He plays Champions League, he played a European Super Cup, he had already big matches in his hands, and he has to grow up with the level of experiences, which I believe he can because he has huge experience."
