Shay Given set to join Lampard at Chelsea

Former Republic of Ireland goalkeeper Shay Given looks set to join the Chelsea coaching staff under Frank Lampard

Given, who is the Republic of Ireland's second-highest cap holder, was on Lampard's coaching staff at Derby County.

Derby finished sixth in the Championship last season, the last play-off place. They made the play-off final just losing out 2-1 to Aston Villa at Wembley.

Lampard is the red-hot favourite to replace Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge after the Italian left for Juventus this week. As well as Sarri, much of his backroom staff, as many as nine, are expected to depart too. Such clearing of the coaching decks will leave plenty of vacancies for Lampard to fill, if and when he takes over the Blues hot-seat. Given is expected to be one of those appointments.

Coach

Goalkeeping coach under Sarri Massimo Nenci is among those expected to leave. Nenci was understood to be part of the very public misunderstanding between Sarri and Kepa Arrizabalaga in the League Cup final. The goalkeeper appeared to defy his manager at Wembley and refused to come off the pitch.

Given was appointed as head goalkeeping coach at Derby by Lampard when he took over the Rams. The former Ireland keeper has been at Lampard's side throughout his time at Pride Park and is expected to make the move to Stamford Bridge with the Blues Legend.
