‘Lampard was a winner but he’s not a player anymore’ – Chelsea boss sees credentials questioned by Cascarino

Frank Lampard Chelsea 2019-20

Frank Lampard has seen his managerial credentials questioned by Tony Cascarino, with the Chelsea legend warned that being a winner as a player is no guarantee of success as a coach.

A calculated gamble was taken on him when returning to west London in 2019, with just one year spent on the touchline at Championship side Derby.

Lampard was eased into a top job, as Chelsea put faith in youth during a transfer embargo, but any shackles have been shaken off in the current campaign.

Roman Abramovich has bankrolled another elaborate spending spree, but is still waiting on big-money additions to offer a return on that investment.

Inconsistency has continued to hold Chelsea back, leading to questions being asked of Lampard’s future.

He has offered a spiky response to those rumours, while vowing not to walk away from any challenge, but Cascarino believes too much tinkering is taking place in west London.

The former Blues striker has told talkSPORT of a man who captured Premier League and Champions League crowns with Chelsea as a player: “He was a winner as a football player. He won everything. But he’s not a football player anymore, he’s a manager.

“A manager of a group of players, a squad of players that he has to get the best out of.

“The goalkeeper should have been changed… that was probably the right decision as Kepa was playing really poorly.

“The whole back four has changed – numerous centre-halves have played atChelsea. There’s been changes in midfield. There’s been changes up front.

“If all you’ve got is changes, then that’s not great management. Great management is finding formations and personnel to get results in a particular game.”

While Chelsea have slipped to eighth place in the Premier League, 11 points adrift of leaders Manchester United, there is still plenty for them to play for in 2021.
