Where is Frank Lampard now?
A Premier League legend and Chelsea’s all-time top goalscorer, Frank Lampard retired from playing in February 2017 after a season playing in the United States with MLS side New York City.
Lampard’s illustrious Chelsea career was laden with trophies and he picked up three Premier League titles, four FA Cup wins, two League Cup wins, a UEFA Europa League trophy and the UEFA Champions League trophy during his time there.
On the day that Lampard announced his retirement he also revealed that he would be completing his coaching badges with the FA at their St George’s Park base with a view to getting involved within their coaching setup and possibly with the England national side.
His former side Chelsea also indicated that they wanted willing to offer him a coaching role but due to other commitments he worked for the club in an ambassadorial capacity.
He did however work with Jody Morris and his under 23 side.
Alongside his coaching duties, Lampard has worked in the media as a pundit and has worked alongside former England team mates Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville on Sky’s Monday Night Football show.
In July 2017 Lampard joined BT Sport as a pundit for their coverage of the 2017-18 season and he is also seen on our screens as a team captain on ITV’s Saturday night show ‘Play to the Whistle’.
Since 2014, he has been writing children’s books and is a successful published author with his Frankie’s Magic Football series.
In September 2017, Lampard along with former England team-mate Steven Gerrard were inducted into the National Hall of Fame.
In June 2018 Lampard was appointed in his first managerial role at Championship side Derby County bringing former Chelsea team-mate Jody Morris with him.
In an eventful first season, his Derby County side finished in sixth position in the league securing a place in the play-off semi-finals.
Beating Leeds United 3-4 on aggregate in two tense games to reach the final, Lampard’s Derby side lost 2-1 to winners Aston Villa who had his former team-mate John Terry as assistant manager.
With an ever-increasing reputation it was only a matter of time before one of the big Premier League clubs came calling and just two months after the play-off final, Lampard replaced the outgoing Mauricio Sarri as manager of his beloved Chelsea .
