Frank Lampard told he doesn’t merit a Premier League job

Former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been told he doesn’t merit a Premier League job.

This is according to former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan, who believes Lampard and Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard don’t deserve a Premier League job.

Gerrard was recently appointed as Aston Villa boss while Lampard pulled out of the race to become the new Norwich City boss.

“The tragedy for Frank is he’s got no backdrop for suggesting he’s a Premier League manager,” Jordan told talkSPORT.

“The Chelsea side he inherited with a group of young players did ok, and then when he was on top in the Premier League which is when you spend money, out the door he went”.

“I don’t think he [Gerrard] has the credentials either,” he continued. “Either one of these guys would walk through the door, if they were Joe Schmo from no where, not Frank Lampard, and not Steven Gerrard, they would never ever get these opportunities because they don’t merit them.

“Steven Gerrard you know who he is, Frank Lampard you know who he is. They both talk very well, they’ve both got good backgrounds, they both seem to be very sensible, but neither of them has been at the top table for winning anything significant.

“I know the SPFL is significant in Scotland, but in real terms it’s [Gerrard’s former role] not going to compare to the job in hand at Aston Villa.”
