Emmanuel Petit believes Frank Lampard isnt ready to take over at Chelsea as their new manager.

Chelsea are expected to name Lampard as their new head coach this week after the departure of Maurizio Sarri to Juventus.

Petit, who played alongside Lampard at Chelsea after an impressive career with Arsenal, backed his former team-mates managerial talents, but thinks the post at Stamford Bridge has come too soon.

Frank Lampard has many qualities, Petit told Paddy Power.

Hes a very dedicated person, who loves football and has total respect for his team-mates and managers. He is always ambitious.

But somewhere in my mind I have a feeling the Chelsea job could have come too soon for him.

We saw what he brought to Derby County, leading them to the playoffs, but that wasnt the end of the story for them and they ended up failing to earn promotion.

Hell face increased expectation at Chelsea, and he knows this, having played for the club for so long.
