Frank Lampard is targeting the currently vacant Rangers managerial position.
On the 4th (Korean time), Britain’s BBC reported, “Former Chelsea and Everton manager Lampard is showing interest in replacing Michael Beal at Rangers.”
Coach Lampard was a legendary Chelsea player. During his active career, he had outstanding scoring ability, scoring 177 goals in the English Premier League (EPL), ranking 5th on the all-time scoring list, even though he was a midfielder. Chelsea’s all-time highest scorer (211 goals) was also Lampard, and he received global recognition as he ranked second in the Ballon d’Or in 2005.
He falls short of this as a director. Coach Lampard was recognized for his potential by leading Derby County, which was in the English Championship (Second Division) during the 2018-2019 season, to the promotion play-offs. He was appointed to Chelsea, which had been banned from recruiting in the transfer market ahead of the 2019-2020 season, and recruited레고토토 Reece James, By actively utilizing promising players such as Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham, he demonstrated his ability to raise the team to 4th place in the league.
But that was all. Coach Lampard showed his limitations as a novice coach the following season, dropping Chelsea to 9th place in the league and being sacked in January 2021. Even at Everton, where he took office in January 2022, he repeated his worst performance of staying in the relegation zone and was sacked after a year.
At the end of last season, he returned to Chelsea as a firefighter. However, the situation was virtually impossible to switch to an official manager, and Manager Lampard put a wedge in this situation with the worst record of 11% winning rate.
A dramatic turnaround is needed for Lampard to make a comeback as a coach. That’s why he’s eyeing the Rangers manager position. On the 2nd, Rangers fired coach Michael Beal, who was in a slump with 4 wins and 3 losses in 7 league games, and appointed Stephen Davis, whose career as a player was virtually ended due to a cruciate ligament rupture, as acting coach.
It is an appropriate space for Manager Lampard to make a comeback. The Scottish league is a space where managers who struggled in the EPL can demonstrate their tactical capabilities, and even manager Steven Gerrard, who had been struggling at Aston Villa, achieved an undefeated victory at Rangers.
That is why Manager Lampard is also trying to knock on the door to Rangers. ‘BBC’ said: “Manager Lampard could hold talks with Rangers, who parted ways with manager Bill after three defeats in his first seven league games.” However, the report did not reveal whether Rangers are interested in manager Lampard.
