Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has recently had a spat with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho.

Lampard’s feud with Klopp happened towards the end of last season, and the two have exchanged words till this season. He also had a surprise touchline drama with Mourinho in Tuesday night’s Carabao Cup exit, that saw Spurs eliminate Chelsea, after penalties.

Lampard’s former team-mate Trever Siinclair, has hailed the Chelsea manager for standing up to the two top managers, and believes he has little to apologise for, and his actions on the touchline are an effective way to show his players that he cares.

“I like the fact Frank stands up for himself. I think he’s his own man,” Sinclair told talkSPORT.

“He’s got to be looked upon by his players that he cares. I think that’s the reaction, from a players’ point of view, I want to see my manager arguing with an opposition manager if he’s giving it loads.

“I want to see him sticking up for us like he cares for it. I think Frank’s done that.

“He’s not going for little managers because we have seen it with Klopp. He doesn’t care.

“Frank’s done everything in the game as a player. If he wants to emulate someone like [Carlo] Ancelotti, he has to stand his ground in the technical box and I think he’s doing that superbly well.”
