Frank Lampard backs former Chelsea captain for Derby County job

Frank Lampard believes John Terry would be the perfect manager for Derby County.

Derby County are currently at the bottom of the table and are on the lookout for a replacement for Philip Cocu who was sacked last month.

Currently, Wayne Rooney is the interim manager at Derby Country but that doesn’t guarantee that he will become permanent manager of the Championship club.

John Terry has been linked with the vacant Derby job and his former teammate Frank Lampard with whom he shares eight Premier League titles believes Terry is destined to become a manager.

“I think John is destined to be a manager. He is obviously working very well alongside Dean Smith over the last few years at Aston Villa, so would have been learning a lot,” Lampard said.

“But what John knows and his experiences in the game as a player will be huge, I know that from playing alongside him so long what he has to offer.

“I think it is a great opportunity potentially for him if true and for Derby.”

Lampard added: “John will be a hungry, ambitious manager, whether it’s Derby or whatever other opportunities come his way as he goes along.

“I don’t know anything [about the Derby link] but John is going to be a fantastic coach in my opinion.”
