Roy Keane doesn’t think Frank Lampard will be able to turn things around at Chelsea after returning to management.
The midfield legend returned as manager of Chelsea football club last week after the club sacked Graham Potter after a string of bad results.
Lampard was not given the full-time position but instead will be the caretaker manager until the end of the season.
The 44-year-old hasn’t had the best managerial career up until now as he was sacked from his last two jobs.
Speaking on The Overlap, Keane gave his honest opinion on the appointment.
“Good luck to him. The way the thing has changed in football, the manager is under a lot of pressure now. A lot of clubs are looking for managers until the end of the season. Listen, good luck to him.” he said.
“I’m not bothered, but….
“They’ve got some excellent players, but obviously something is missing at the moment.
“Even in the last couple of performances, they’re not finding a way to win. I look at the personality of a team when all the stats are positive in terms of possession and chances create, but they haven’t got that nastiness that some of the Chelsea teams have had over the last few years.
“Frank is a lucky boy. Frank has had some really good jobs, you need some luck in the game, but to go back in there? Do I see Chelsea going on to win the Champions League or kicking on to get into the top four? I can’t see it.
“Listen, it’s a mad game we’re involved with and they do have some quality players. Because they’ve brought so many players in it does take some time to gel, I don’t think they’ve got that team spirt and unity at this moment in time…
“I think Chelsea have a lot of good players, but good players don’t make a good team. I think these players will take a long time to gel. When you bring so many players into your football club, it does take time for players to settle in.
“At Chelsea, managers don’t get that time. They’re at the door.”
