Following the disappointment of missing out on promotion to the Premier League this season via the play-offs, Derby County manager Frank Lampard should now be actively preparing his side for their coming campaign in the English second-tier.
Lampard is though, being linked with the manager’s post at Chelsea, after current Blues boss Maurizio Sarri continues to be linked with the management vacancy at Juventus.
Former Chelsea star Shaun Wright-Phillips has suggested to 888sport, that Lampard should snub any approach from Chelsea, believing the 40-year-old should continue his management education at the Rams.
So is Wright-Phillips right that Lampard should snub any Chelsea approach?
“I completely agree.
“Frankly, it is far too early for Lampard to be considering such a big career move, considering he is just one year into management.
“Going to Chelsea and failing would seriously tarnish his reputation so staying in the second tier for now is the right move.”
“He could be.
“The Chelsea job is never the most stable and Lampard’s inexperience might see him tarnish some of his reputation there.
“Of course, it work brilliantly too but it might be best he stays away for now – especially with their transfer issues.”
“It seems crazy to say but Lampard should reject Chelsea if they approached.
“He needs to keep grounded and consider the fact he has only experienced management for a year, in an environment completely different to Chelsea.
“He’s started well at Derby so he should try and continue that success – promotion on his CV would look brilliant and Chelsea would be likely to come in again. If he went now, there’s a chance he could start badly and then it would be all downhill from there.”
