Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud is gradually approaching the end of his career, having achieved a lot for both club and country.
At 34, the World Cup winner is being managed by a 42-year-old whom he played against while as an Arsenal player.
Giroud may not be Lampard’s first choice striker, but he has given glowing reports about the young manager despite all the negative criticisms of late.
“It’s nice to have a young manager so even if he will still learn all through his career, he’s already got a lot of qualities to manage a team,” Giroud told Stadium Astro.
“I wish he could join a bit more in circles to play with us but his knee is not right right now so hopefully will get better soon and we can play with him.
“He’s got good ideas and for me it’s always nice to have a manager who was a big player, who has won a lot of things.
“He can always make you improve.”
