Frank Lampard

Frank Lampard is a former English soccer player and current manager. Born on 20 June 1978, Lampard has had an impressive career as both a footballer and manager. He is known for his goal scoring ability and tactical intelligence. He spent much of his career playing for Chelsea, where he won three Premier League titles, four FA Cups and two League Cups. Lampard was also a key member of the England national team, with which he participated in three World Championships and two European Championships. He is the fourth most capped English footballer, with 106 appearances.

After retiring from playing soccer, Lampard began his coaching career, taking over as manager of Derby County in 2018. In his first year as manager, he took the club to the semi-finals of the Championship play-offs, only to lose out Wembley final against Aston Villa. In 2019, Lampard became the manager of Chelsea, the club where he spent most of his playing career. Despite the club's financial restrictions due to breaches of financial fair play rules, Lampard led Chelsea to Champions League qualification in his first season as manager. On 6 April 2023, after the dismissal of Graham Potter, he was recalled to lead Chelsea, at that time eleventh in the table with 39 points, with a contract until the end of the season.
