Hiring a club legend to manage an ego-laden team, what could possibly go wrong?

Now that Chelsea have brilliantly manage to pawn off Mauricio Sarri, the manager with 2nd best first season win record in the history of  the club onto the unsuspecting 9-in-a-row Serie A Champion, Juventus, they can finally get busy bringing their prodigal son home.

On the latest Football Spin, Paddy McKenna and Conan Doherty discuss the potential next manager of Chelsea. Club legend, Frank Lampard is the frontrunner. What can the man who, in a single season, took a 6th place Derby County from the Championship, to 6th in the Championship do for the club? And whatever it is, will it finally make Roman Abramovich happy?

Elsewhere, Reuben Pinder at the Women's World Cup, discusses 'mercy rules' after USA's 13-0 demolition of Thailand. Questions have been asked about the quality of the play in general at the World Cup, but are comparisons to the men's game really that fair?

And the Premier League fixtures are out. How uncomfortable will it get for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the Old Trafford hot seat with a hard run of games for Man United to start the new season?
