“He’s already got a lot of qualities to manage a team”: Olivier Giroud Comes Out In Support Of Frank Lampard: The under pressure manager has found support in his club’s striker
Under fire at the moment after tasting his fifth winless result in his last six matches, Frank Lampard is set to be facing the heat. With Chelsea slipping all the way down into 9th spot after accruing just 4 points from 18 matches, Lampard’s job as manager of the side hangs finely in the balance.
Treading over thin ice, reports suggest Chelsea have already drawn up a list of names to replace Lampard. Thomas Tuchel and Allegri are both set to have taken precedence for the club if results don’t improve substantially over the next month.
Olivier Giroud Spoke In Support Of Frank Lampard
In the midst of this rut, Lampard has gotten much needed backing in the form of Olivier Giroud. The Chelsea striker has come out in staunch support of his manager with Giroud going onto say that Lampard had all the right tools needed to take Chelsea forward.
“It’s nice to have a young manager so even if he will still learn all through his career, he’s already got a lot of qualities to manage a team,” the French striker told Stadium Astro.
“I wish he could join a bit more in circles to play with us but his knee is not right right now so hopefully will get better soon and we can play with him.
The comments will be welcomed with both arms by Lampard especially after coming from a player who has grown increasingly flummoxed about his time at the club. Despite being left out in the cold by Lampard despite being in sensational form this season, Giroud have been left bereft of an adequate amount of chances.
The club’s leading scorer last year, Olivier Giroud sees him contract at the club run down at the end of this season. And with the striker reaching the tailend of his career, the player is set to be increasingly eager to move to greener pastures with Atletico Madrid claimed to make a move for the player.
