VIDEO: “Frank, take the job” – Drogba ‘hints’ to Rio that Lampard could be talking to Chelsea

A video has emerged on social media appearing to show Chelsea legend Didier Drogba talking to the camera on his phone but also Rio Ferdinand on Frank Lampard.

Over the last few weeks, as we all know, Lampard has been speculated and linked with swapping the manager role at Derby County for a return to the Blues even before Mauricio Sarri left for Juventus.

A variety of reports have come out, some stating the Championship club’s owner Mel Morris hasn’t receive an approach from Chelsea from him, to now talks have taken place.

The latter being confirmed or should we say hinted by Drogba when talking to Ferdinand as you can see in the video below.

Rio said: “They should do it! I think he will get it”

“Is he talking?”

Drogba pulled a face before claiming he doesn’t know.

Rio replied: “I think he’s talking and I think he’s gonna get it. If he’s talking, he’s getting the job because he can talk.

“Frank, take the job man. Take it, Chelsea need you.

Former Derby captain and club ambassador, Michael Johnson, has asked Chelsea to be respectful while pursuing Lampard.

He said: “There has been no direct contact made by Chelsea, but you can’t get away from the noises and it’s probably going to be more ‘when’ than ‘if’.

“From our side, from Derby’s side, we want that little bit of respect from Chelsea’s regard.

“If you’re going to make the approach, just make the approach; be open and transparent about it.”
