Eden Hazard heaps praise on Frank Lampard

Following Chelsea's impressive run of form recently, Eden Hazard has tipped Frank Lampard to be the best manager in the world.

This is Lampard's second season in management after being in charge of Derby County last campaign and took over at Chelsea in the summer.

Chelsea are currently on a good run of form, having lost just one of their last 11 fixtures in all competitions, a run that has seen them climb to third in the Premier League table.

Hazard who left Chelsea in the summer to join Real Madrid tipped Lampard to be a great coach, "I wasn't surprised about Frank Lampard. I know Frank as a player not a manager but he is a great guy.

"He has shown already in four months that he came be one of the best managers in the world. The good thing is they are playing with young English players. They are lucky to have young players with quality.

"Maybe with two or three more they would be first in the Premier League. When I saw them play it was nice to see them all play together. I still have friends there are want them to do well."
