Despite Chelsea’s struggles under Frank Lampard and Manchester United sitting at the top of the Premier League table under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan believes Lampard will achieve more than Solskjaer.
“I have a belief, whether it is ill-founded or out of place, that Frank Lampard will achieve things and I don’t have the belief that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will,” Jordan told talkSPORT on Wednesday.
“The comparing and contrasting is irrelevant because I don’t believe that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will reach the standards that I think Frank Lampard will.
“I don’t believe Solskjaer will bridge the gap at any point and I believe there is a distinct possibility that Frank Lampard will.
“Whether that means that Roman Abramovich will give him the time to do it that is a different discussion.
“The reasons why I attach a different level of rhetoric to Lampard than I do to Solskjaer is that my belief is that Lampard has the capability to be an elite manager.
“And I don’t believe Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does.”
