Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard insists Frank Lampard’s dismissal as Chelsea boss came as no surprise to him because Chelsea have a history of sacking managers.
Gerrard, now Rangers boss, believes Lampard will get back in no time but will want to spend some time with the family right now.
“Obviously I’m gutted for Frank, he’s an ex-teammate of mine, someone I respect greatly,” Steven Gerrard said, as per Goal.
“But knowing the guy, he will be back in no time. He will dust himself down and get back involved. He will use this time to spend with his family. He’s obviously got a young family and one on the way.
“I’m disappointed for him. I thought it was a very swift exit on the back of a positive result at the weekend (3-1 win over Luton Town in FA Cup on Sunday).
“But I don’t know the details. I don’t know how it’s been for him, I don’t know the relationships that he’s had inside the club.
“I did think it was an opportunity for Chelsea to really reach out and support him during this tough period rather than do what they have done.
“But Chelsea have got history for that so it was no surprise.”
