West Ham boss David Moyes has expressed disappointment over the sacking of Frank Lampard as Chelsea manager.
The former Chelsea midfielder was hailed as one of Chelsea’s greatest ever players and replaced Italian coach Maurizio Sarri as manager for the 2019/20 season, leading the London club to an impressive fourth-place finish.
He was also instrumental in the development of several young players, as the likes of Reece James, Mason Mount, Fikayo Tomori and Tammy Abraham burst onto the scene under his guidance.
But that couldn’t save him, with the Chelsea hierarchy opting to part ways with him following a run of bad results.
Speaking ahead of his side’s clash against Crystal Palace, West Ham nanager David Moyes acknowledged the good job Lampard did last season and expressed his disappointment to see him leave.
I’m disappointed for Frank as I saw him as one of the most up and coming young English managers in the country.
It’s a big thing we try to encourage our own British managers into the big leagues, if we can. I’m sure he’ll come back and learn from it.Advertisement
He did a great job last year. He did a really good job with so many youngsters coming through the academy
It seemed a little bit harder for him this year. I’m sure he’ll take time off, come back and get better.
