Frank Lampard tried to get Villas-Boas sacked

Lampard’s complaints led to Andre Villas-Boas being sacked.

Former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was handed the sack just after 18 months of his managerial tenure at Stamford Bridge.

United legend Gary Neville believes that his old England teammate has got the taste of his own medicine after he played a role in getting rid of one of the former bosses at Chelsea.

“I think because of the rumours that came out of Stamford Bridge and the media before, it wasn’t really a shock,” Neville told in The Gary Neville Podcast.

“I thought initially he would get more time, just to let them settle in but you can’t be surprised by Chelsea.

“I go back to in Napoli eight or nine years ago, when [Andre] Villas-Boas had picked a team in the afternoon of a Champions League game. And he left out Frank Lampard, Michael Essien and another big player at that time.

“And I remember Chelsea players at that time ringing up members of the media and trying to get him out. And Frank was part of that group.

“And it has been really a brutal football club for managers for many many years, and Frank has suffered that brutality last week, so he should be the least of all surprised because he has been at the club when Villas-Boas was sacked, [Luis] Scolari, and all the rest of them have come and gone.”
