Former Blues midfielder Frank Lampard is ready to follow in the footsteps of England compatriot Steven Gerrard as he is ready to get into management.
It seems that England’s Golden Generation is now in that stage of their lives to take up the next best thing in football in the form of Coaching sides. One of the most famous midfield duos for the country Gerrard and Lampard are looking to keep themselves on their toes and not too far away from the pitch near the dug-out, even after their illustrious football careers as players have come to an end.
Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has been shockingly linked to taking up a managerial job at Scottish club Rangers after a brief stint coaching with the Liverpool academy. The 37-year-old Scouser is ready to go head to head with his former boss Brendan Rodgers, who is at Celtic. And Gerrard’s compatriot at Sky Sports Frank Lampard is also keen on giving it a go in the manager’s department.
The 39-year-old former Blue has worked behind the scenes at Chelsea to polish up his resume in order to take up a frontline coaching role. Lampard revealed at the Independent that he has already got his license and is now just waiting for the right opportunity, “Well I’m doing my coaching badges at the moment. I’ve spent a lot of time at Chelsea this year, gaining hours of experience. I’ve already managed to get my A License in coaching. So yes, with the right opportunity and right timing for me, I’d really take a very close look at it.” There are links of Lampard willing to take on Championship side Ipswich Town if its available in the summer.
Lampard went on to state that Gerrard does have a lot of knowledge of the game and should be able to understand most of the players that he coaches, “I’ve known Steven a long time; he’s a serious thinker about the game. I work with him now, and his analysis and extent of knowledge about the game is huge”
Lampard is keen on trying to make most of his former national colleagues get into coaching because he feel it is a chance for former players to give something back to try and develop young players. And a lower ranked club at the Championship is the best job to take on to actually start off a manager’s career and then move up the order.
