Frank Lampard has been praised by Steve Bruce as a great boss.
“I worried about his generation because not many are going into the coaching, but Frank, [Steven] Gerrard, [John] Terry have done it.
“I’m delighted he’s stamped his mark on it straight away. I’m a big admirer of Frank, a great lad and it can’t be easy to manage Chelsea.
“I’m delighted for Frank. As I’ve said many times I worried for that generation. They’re all financially fine because they played in the Premier League. But now you’ve got Frank, John and Gerrard. They’ve stayed in and it’s good to see as I didn’t think there would be many. Frank’s a good lad.’’
Lampard started his coaching career as a manager for Derby when he took over as their boss in 2018. In one season, he changed the look and feel of the squad and took them to the final of the play-offs.
He was given the reins at Chelsea last summer and Lampard rose to the challenge last summer. He took a crippled Chelsea side and has given them a whole new life with a license to thrill and a great lot of freedom.
