Didier Drogba believes Frank Lampard would be an excellent choice to take over from Maurizio Sarri as the next Chelsea manager, with the Italian set to join Juventus.

The Serie A champions are expected to announce Sarri's arrival in the next couple of days after agreeing a compensation package with Chelsea worth around £5million.

Chelsea have been linked with a host of names to succeed Sarri, though Blues legend and current Derby County boss Lampard is the clear favourite for the job.

Michael Essien, who will also play in the Soccer Aid match at Stamford Bridge, was also asked if Lampard could take over at Chelsea, and replied: 'Why not? Anything can happen - football is full of surprises.
