Chelsea legend Frank Lampard confirms he is in talks over becoming Derby County manager
Frank Lampard has confirmed he is in talks with Derby County regarding the club’s managerial vacancy.
The former Chelsea and England midfielder is eager to move into coaching, having worked as TV pundit since ending his glittering playing career last year.
Speaking on BT Sport’s Champions League final coverage, Lampard said: “There’s been interest from Derby, I’ve been speaking to them.
“I’m ambitious and I want to become a manager at some point. It’s a big club, with big tradition and big history, which I really like.
“We’ll carry on speaking when I go home and see.”
Lampard, 39, would be taking over a club who are desperate for promotion having last tasted Premier League football a decade ago and suffered several near promotion misses since.
Previous boss Gary Rowett left to join Stoke this week after losing to Fulham in the play-off semi-finals.
