Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has hailed Frank Lampard, adding that he is 'perfect' for Chelsea.

The Foxes boss has praised Lampard's decision to promote young talented players at Stamford Bridge, and also said the club's record goalscorer will be aware of the need to win trophies at the west London side.

Speaking ahead of the Foxes clash against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, Rodgers said as Sky Sports quoted: "I think Frank has done very well since he has gone in.

Zouma identified the positives from Chelsea's narrow loss to Liverpool.

"You can't forget this is a team that has finished third last season and won the Europa League. So it tells you everything about the talent that is in the squad.

"But I think Frank is perfect for it. Him, Jody and Joe Edwards, who are around the first team, they understand the fabric of Chelsea and what it is about.

"I have been really impressed watching the team. Okay, they have lost their first couple of games but the tempo of their game is good. They are obviously going to play at a higher intensity and tempo in their game.

"Frank understands the policy at the club, how it works and will be looking to bring in some of the young players which he has done. He has given them an opportunity. You have to admire that.

"People have always looked at Chelsea and wondered if they are going to get a chance. For whatever reason they haven't got the opportunity. Frank is now there with Jody and Joe and will give them that chance to flourish. Then they are always going to have top-class players around that."
