Frank Lampard has rubbished reports that he could be a major contender to take over at Chelsea should the club decide to part ways with current underwhelming manager, Maurizio Sarri.
The former English midfielder has always been tipped to one day lead his former club as a coach but has insisted his focus for now is only on his current team, Derby County.
His words, “My job is here,”
“We’re working very hard and my thoughts are on Ipswich Town on Wednesday, and Brighton on Saturday.”
“With my Chelsea hat on, 13 years as a player there, you have a feeling for it and it’s not nice, it’s not easy. It doesn’t happen to Chelsea much so when it does it’s a shock.
“But they’re going up against an incredible team and I had some time at Manchester City as well. I have some feelings for them. The work Pep Guardiola and their incredible squad have done is something special.
“For Chelsea it was a tough day. With all top teams the important thing is you come back strong, no matter what type of defeat. What makes top teams is resilience and Chelsea as a club will have it.”
