UEFA, on Thursday, reacted after Chelsea appointed Frank Lampard as the club’s new manager.

The Europe top football governing body described Lampard’s appointment as a ‘good move’.

“Chelsea appoint 2012 winner & former midfielder Frank Lampard as their new manager on a three-year deal. Good move,” UEFA posted on Twitter alongside a picture of Lampard on Blues’ shirt holding the 2012 Champions League trophy.

News had reported earlier that Lampard on Thursday signed a three-year deal with Chelsea worth £4million-a-year with hefty bonuses, especially for getting into the UEFA Champions League.

The 41-year-old replaces Maurizio Sarri, who has since left to take over at Juventus, after spending only one season at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking after his appointment, Lampard told Chelsea’s official website: “I am immensely proud to be returning to Chelsea as head coach. Everyone knows my love for this club and the history we have shared.”
