Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed his wife Christine is banned from organising social gatherings after Chelsea matches – because he gets grumpy if Chelsea loses.
Lampard admits he’s “a nightmare” if the Blues lose – which is why there are no dinner parties in the Lampard household on match days.
“We’re not allowed to arrange dinners or any kind of get-together after games in case the worst comes to the worst,” said the 42-year-old, speaking on the Eddie Hearn: No passion, No Point podcast.
“Because if we lose I’m a nightmare. I can’t help it, it’s just par for the course.”
Lampard also talked about the pressure of being a manager.
“I had a year in the media, which was an absolute comedown from the pressures of playing and the pressures I get now,” he said. “And as Christine will joke, I was a much better, easier, more relaxed Frank.”
