Lampard to be appointed Chelsea manager "within 48 hours"

Lampard to be appointed Chelsea manager

In the next 48 hours, Frank Lampard will be appointed Chelsea's chief coach, talkSPORT reported.

The former Napoli boss won the Europa League and guided Chelsea FC to a third-placed finish in his debut campaign in west London.

The 21-year-old spent last season on loan at Aston Villa in the Championship, where he helped the team navigate the play-offs and return to the Premier League.

Abraham featured against Lampard's Derby in the playoffs finals last month when Villa beat them 2-1 at Wembley.

Chelsea's new manager could end up having to rely on the cub's vast selection of young talent and striker Tammy Abraham is optimistic about his chances to establish himself next season. I got 1000s of messages from Chelsea fans on Instagram (when out on loan) saying play him, play him.

Chelsea are aiming to make progress on appointing a new head coach this week, but Derby have been left in limbo while they wait.

US Cyber Command targeted the Iran military's computer systems used to control some of the country's rocket and missile launchers. In a pair of tweets , Trump said U.S. aims regarding Iran boil down to "No Nuclear Weapons and No Further Sponsoring of Terror".

"There is no better guy [than Lampard] to play under".

He added: "This year is the most important year for us [young players]". Someone you have grown up watching, been at Chelsea forever.

He will also bring along assistant Jody Morris, who is set for his own return to Stamford Bridge after several successful years as the Blues' academy manager.

"There will never be a better time to play the youngsters".

Lampard is Chelsea FC's record goal-scorer following a glittering career at Stamford Bridge between 2001 and 2014.

Lampard has been linked with the Chelsea job after impressing during his brief stint at Derby County, almost helping the Championship club to promotion at the end of the previous campaign.
