Many fans would defend Lampard calling him a newbie coach who had his luck managing a top club like Chelsea with literally no coaching experience.
Many would say “Lampard coached Derby County a top Club” yeah I agree a top club that he lost the chance to be a hero taking them to the EPL.
I love Lampard as a Club legend don’t get me wrong, but after Chelsea spent over 200 million in landing new Signings for him he hasn’t given that technicality of a top coach.
In case you just became a new Chelsea fan probably because of some new signings allow me to show you a video of all the signings Chelsea made this year (2020) 👇
Positional Mistakes Frank Lampard made this season
- Christian Pulisic as a Right Winger
- Mason Mount as a Left Winger
- Kai Havertz as a Right Winger
- Timo Werner as a Left Winger
- Hudson-Odoi as a right-winger
You would probably agree that all those positional changes looks crazy! But some of the players have learned to adapt to those positions while some were unable to adapt.
Using Timo Werner as a left-winger for instance has affected the player as he has felt uneasy in front of Goal.
Mason Mount has been comfortable playing as a left-winger or any position frank Lampard decides to play him on, he was even asked in an interview how he felt with Lampard always changing him from his natural position, and he replied;
Am comfortable playing as a winger, a false Striker, or behind the striker, I just want to play”
The Englishman has shown his desire to wanting to be on the pitch regardless of which position he plays in.
Christian Pulisic has shown that he isn’t comfortable playing right-wing countless times, just like against Arsenal he wasn’t effective on the right-wing till the second half when Lampard brought on Callum Hudson-odoi so they can switch positions.
