Frank Lampard opens up and has management message for Chelsea fans
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has admitted that he didn’t always think he was cut out for management.
Regarded as one of the finest players to ever grace the game, Lampard decided to make the decision to try himself as a manager in the game when he took over Derby last season.
His performances as boss, his tactical decisions and the fact that he demanded respect from players meant that it did not take long for us to come calling, and after getting rid of Maurizio Sarri.
Many have doubted whether he can get the side back to the very top of the game, but he has put together a young, exciting side that is attracting all sorts of interest, and with his side in the hunt for a top four spot, he could exceed all expectations this season.
However, he has come out and admitted that he did not believe he had what it took to become a manager, he said on the official website: “I wouldn’t say players spoke about it much.
“I think players tend to be very much in the moment and I probably was like that to a degree as well.
“I wouldn’t have sat there and spoken too much with other players about it, and some of my former team-mates who have gone into management have surprised me.
“I’ve read that some others are surprised I’ve done it, because of how I was as a player.
“I wasn’t always hugely vocal in the dressing room as vice-captain, I wasn’t expected to be, because of the attributes John [Terry] had and the slightly different ones I had.”
Look, Lampard is a top boss that just needs time and patience to get things right, if he is given that, he could become one of the best.
