Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Owen played with the 41-year-old for the England national football team, and he believes that Lampard will be a success as the Chelsea boss.
Every managerial appointment is a risk. Guardiola and Zidane are decent enough examples of clubs benefiting from taking a risk on unproven managers in recent years. Good luck Lamps, pave the way for more clubs to give young English managers a chance.— michael owen (@themichaelowen) July 4, 2019
Good managerial appointment for Chelsea?

The Englishman is a Chelsea legend, and one suspects that the Stamford Bridge faithful will be patient with him next season.
With Chelsea unable to sign any players in the summer transfer window, the London club will find it tough to finish in the top four of the Premier League during the 2019-20 campaign.
