Klopp sends message to Frank Lampard ahead of Anfield meeting

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has praised Frank Lampard for the exceptional job he’s doing at Chelsea.

“Frank is doing an exceptional job, not only at Chelsea either – he did really, really well at Derby already,” Klopp told Liverpool’s official website.

“[He] faced quite a challenge at Chelsea because I think when you are Chelsea manager… I don’t think anybody expected the title this year from them, but everybody expected them to qualify for the Champions League because that’s what we all need as clubs.

“That’s how it is, and that, in a really, really strong league, is always a challenge. It was for us always and will always be for us, that’s how it is.

“I really think he did brilliantly. He is now in the FA Cup final obviously, which is a big one, and by the way, both managers in the FA Cup final, one of them will win their first major trophy this year so that’s really impressive.

“But Frank knows as well that he has a really good team there on the pitch, that’s a proper team [with] a lot of talent.”
