Fans Are Excited For Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Vs Frank Lampard Next Season

Fans Are Excited For Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Vs Frank Lampard Next Season

Frank Lampard was appointed as the new manager of Chelsea on Thursday morning and fans are already looking forward to his clash with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on the opening day of the season.

To add to the excitement of the club's all time top scorer returning as the 'gaffer' is the fact that his first competitive match will be the team's Premier League opener against Manchester United.

That means that Lampard will be facing former opponent on the pitch Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and fans are already pumped for it.

The whole thing screams of a Football Manager save and football's been going that way for the last year or so with Steven Gerrard, Thierry Henry, Lee Bowyer and Phil Neville all moving into management for the first time.

Once Lampard moved out of the BT Sports studio and into the role at Derby County it seemed inevitable that he would one day be in charge at Stamford Bridge.

Maurizio Sarri's decision to move back to Italy along with the Blues' transfer ban has speeded up the process after Lampard's one season at Derby, which resulted in a play-off final loss to Aston Villa.

Lampard follows in the footsteps of Jose Mourinho, his successor Avram Grant and Carlo Ancelotti in having his first official game as manager against United.

Will he be victorious over Solskjaer?
