Sterling makes demand from Chelsea manager that will replace Lampard
Chelsea winger, Raheem Sterling has said the next manager of the club must have “the final say on everything”.
Sterling is now playing under Frank Lampard, who is the fourth manager at Stamford Bridge this season.
Lampard was handed a deal until the end of the current campaign.
Chelsea are believed to be close to appointing Mauricio Pochettino as their new permanent boss.
“I’m not one to tell the club what to do but from what I can gauge from where I was previously, organisation is the most important thing. Having a manager that has the final say on everything and it being his way with everyone having to follow that,” he said.
“Successful teams always have a manager that comes in, brings his blueprint and everyone follows. If there are people that don’t follow, then they are not part of the team and that is how brutal it needs to be at a high level,” Sterling told Sky Sports.
