Frank Lampard would be a "very good option" for Chelsea's next manager if Maurizio Sarri departs, according to Didier Drogba.

And Drogba believes Lampard's lack of experience will not count against him should the Blues decide to offer him the job.

β€œI think it is a very good option for the club,” he said.

Standard Sport understands the Blues legend is on the club's first-choice candidate to replace Sarri if the Italian coach takes over the vacant job at Juventus.

β€œHe has done well with Derby, taking the team to the play-off final.” Drogba, who will take part in the Soccer Aid charity match alongside former team-mate Michael Essien, believes Lampard's age should not be the reason he doesn't get the job.

the Ivorian replied when asked about his inexperience.

Italian tactician Massimiliano Allegri and Watford boss Javi Gracia are also thought to be viewed as potential replacements with the 60-year-old widely expected to return to the Serie A. Lampard, 40, enjoyed a fine debut season in management, taking the Rams to the Championship Play-off Final before a 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa at Wembley.
