Chelsea legend Frank Lampard revealed on Saturday evening that he is in talks with Championship side Derby County over becoming the club’s next manager.
Chelsea’s all-time top goal-scorer currently works for BT Sport as a pundit. He has showcased his understanding of the game to the channel’s audience, and he appears keen to take that one step further.
While speaking on BT Sport’s coverage of the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool on Saturday evening, Lampard confirmed that he has held talks with Derby over the vacant managerial position.
He’s quoted by the BBC saying:
“I’ve been speaking to them. I am ambitious. I will carry on speaking to them when I get home. It’s a big club with big history and I want to get into management.”
If Lampard were able to build a managerial reputation that might catch the eye of Chelsea, our dreams could be realised, with him at the helm and John Terry as his number two.
However, the Championship is one of the most competitive leagues in the world, with the managerial world being one of the toughest and most unforgiving businesses on the planet.
He ought to know what he’s getting into.
