Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has gotten his first managerial job since hanging his boot as he has been named as Derby County’s new manager.
The 39-year-old has been a regular pundit on BT Sport since his retirement in February 2017 and is set for his first managerial role in first-team football.
The Chelsea legend has agreed to a three-year deal with the Rams and Chelsea youth coach Jody Morris is set to join Derby’s coaching staff and is expected be appointed as Lampard’s assistant.
Lampard’s appointment as Derby County manager follows the departure of Gary Rowett, with the latter stepping down from his position at Pride Park to take over the reins at Stoke City ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.
Lampard had a successful playing career having won three Premier League titles and one Champions League in his time at Chelsea. It’s time for him to prove himself as a manager. We wish him luck.
