Following Chelsea’s appointment of Frank Lampard as our new boss, questions have been asked of his lack of experience after just one season in management.
Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler has blasted those criticising Chelsea for appointing an inexperienced Frank Lampard.
Fowler told Daily Mirror: “You need a manager who can create the right atmosphere to get the best out of his squad, who knows what they can and can’t relate to, who knows what works with them and what doesn’t.
“This is why the ‘lack of experience’ argument is nonsense. Who has more experience of what makes Chelsea’s current group of players tick than Frank Lampard?
“A young Pep Guardiola went into Barcelona without experience and created the best team they’ve ever had.
“He did that by accommodating the talents that people said couldn’t fit together, in a system that made the most of their strengths and removed weaknesses.
“I’m not saying Lampard is Guardiola, but I am saying fair play to Chelsea and there should be more appointments like him.
“They have taken a risk, yes, but why not? Maybe it’s time Chelsea looked at the bigger picture and the longer term. They have to stop appointing a new manager almost every season.”
