Frank Lampard, the legendary Chelsea player, has recently opened up about his struggles as a football coach. Despite his successful stint with Derby in the lower leagues, Lampard's foray into the Premier League has been plagued by failures and dismissals.
The Rise and Fall of Lampard's Coaching Career
Lampard's first term as Chelsea's head coach was cut short due to poor results, and his brief stint with Everton this season also ended in disappointment. His recent six-match spell with Chelsea has seen the same number of defeats, making it ten losses in a row and sixteen games without a win.
Lampard acknowledges that he will not be managing Chelsea next season and is more cautious about choosing his next coaching venture. "I don't want to be an interim manager in my next job," said Lampard. "I'd like to work on a project that feels like it has an opportunity to go the way I want it to go."
A New Approach to Coaching
Lampard reflects on his past choices, admitting that he may have taken on jobs with big challenges.
"Maybe I will think in a different way when I move on," he said. "It's trying to find a club that is aligned with where you want to take the team, the style, and the club." The former Chelsea player is aware of the difficulties of being a football coach and wants to find a project that is right for him.
"I don't want it to sound like I'm going to pick and select," he said. "But maybe I will think in a different way when I move on." Lampard has had a successful career as a player, and his two stints as Chelsea's interim manager are a testament to his achievements.
However, his recent struggles as a coach have made him reflect on his approach and future prospects. "I'm fortunate to have managed Chelsea twice and Everton, which are huge clubs," he said. "But maybe I will think in a different way when I move on."
