Lampard has showed he can be one of the best managers in the world-Hazard.

Published

Eden Hazard believes former Chelsea teammate Frank Lampard can become ‘one of the best managers in the world’ after the latter’s impressive start at Stamford Bridge.

The Belgian winger moved on from the west London club in the summer to join Real Madrid, just before Lampard took over managerial duties at Chelsea from Maurizio Sarri.

When asked on international duty with Belgium whether he was surprised by Lampard’s impact at Chelsea, Hazard told The Metro: ‘No, not at all.

‘I know Frank as a player, not as a manager, but he’s a great guy. He’s showed already after four months that he can be one of the best managers in the world.

‘The good thing is that they are playing with young players, young English players. For England it’s good, for Chelsea’s it’s good. They are lucky to have young players with quality.’

Chelsea were unable to try and replace Hazard externally due to the transfer ban imposed on the club during the summer transfer window.

However, while it is believed that the ban gave Lampard the freedom to experiment with and integrate younger players, Hazard believes his side could be doing even better if they had been allowed to make a few additions in the summer.

Asked if he thought the ban had been a blessing in disguise, Hazard said: ‘I don’t know. Maybe with two or three more players they would [be] first!

‘When I saw them play it’s nice, they all play together. I still have good friends there. I follow them all the time. They are winning at the moment so I’m just happy for them.’

Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi has revealed that local players who play in the Ghana Premier League would enjoy a monthly salary of GHC1,500 when NDC gets elected into power in the forthcoming 2020 elections.

For some years now, players have been calling for better conditions for local players to prevent them from leaving the local leagues to outside the country in search of greener pastures.

NDC has said in their manifesto that was released 2 weeks ago that they’ll come and make things better by setting up a sports fund. This fund is intended to support several sporting activities in the country.

The Communications Officer of the main opposition party said the sports fund will support football clubs to pay players at least GH₵1,500 as a monthly salary.

“The NDC will establish a sports development fund. The government will furnish the account with enough money and also generate some from cooperate bodies”, he said on Kumasi FM.

Every club that plays in the premier league will be supported with funds to settle player salaries, an average money of GHC 1,500 will be paid to each player.

“Every club that qualifies to play in the CAF Inter-club competition will also be supported. The inter-colleges games will also be supported financially with this fund.

“ However, clubs that transfer players abroad will give a percentage of the money they earn into the sports fund.”
