Chelsea legend Frank Lampard believes Antonio Conte “has the pedigree” to succeed at Stamford Bridge.
The Italy CT will step down after Euro 2016, and appears all-but certain to move to the English side in the summer.

“I don't know him too well but he's got a great pedigree, a great recent record with Juventus,” the New York City FC midfielder told BT Sport.
