Derby County

‘No need’, ‘I don’t like it’ – Plenty of Derby fans react as Lampard moves to address future



Derby County boss Frank Lampard has recently dismissed speculation linking him with a move back to Chelsea as manager.

The 40-year old is currently the strong favourite for the role at Stamford Bridge, with current manager Maurizio Sarri coming under major scrutiny in recent times after a 6-0 thrashing at Manchester City on Sunday.

The former England midfielder is bound to be a popular choice amongst the Chelsea fans – he may not have the greatest amount of experience, but he represented Chelsea over 650 times in his career.

Speaking about the speculation, Lampard said: “Bookmakers are not always right, for starters, I wouldn’t get excited about that.”

“It (Chelsea) is certainly a club I respect, and (Sarri) a manager I respect, so it wouldn’t make me smile or anything different because my job is here, and I am working very hard.”

It’s a statement that Derby fans are bound to love and breathe a sigh of relief over – Lampard has been a revelation at Pride Park since his appointment in the summer, with the Rams well in and amongst the promotion mixer ahead of a trip to bottom side Ipswich on Wednesday.

Here, we take a look at Derby fans’ reactions to Lampard’s latest claim…
