Frank Lampard slammed by former player in scathing interview, he did not hold back

Chelsea interim manager Frank Lampard has been brutally blasted by one of his former players in a scathing interview.
Lampard returned to Stamford Bridge as the interim manager last month after the club sacked Graham Potter.
However, the Chelsea legend has had a torrid start to his second stint as manager after losing all six matches in charge.
To add to Lampard’s woes, one of his former players has slammed his management style during a brutal interview.
Former Liverpool full-back Andre Wisdom played under Lampard at Derby County and he slammed his former boss during an interview with The Beautiful Game Podcast.
He said: “I've had one manager scream at me and it was Lampard. We got smashed by, 4-0 I think, and I said some comments after the game and then he just went in. But it was nothing to do really with football, it was more about me as a person which was very strange to me.
“He said some things that were just very strange. For instance, when someone says "I'm not scared of you". He said I walked slow, he said I bully people.”
Wisdom added: “Anybody you could ask, I know it might sound a bit egotistical, but they'll say no Andre is cool. I've never once even raised my voice at anyone. Don't play with me. Do not. Don't. But bully is different.
“I'll talk to you by yourself over there. That's my type. But in front of people, why do that? You're going to react then we have a problem. I'm not all the things he said, so it was weird.”
Wisdom said the experience of playing under Lampard was weird.
He continued: “My experience it was weird, it was very, very weird. It didn't feel like I was at football, and I think what kind of threw me was the fact that it was Frank Lampard.
“I don't want you to misinterpret it like I was in awe... far from. Far from. I think I expected something that I wasn't getting. I expected more from him as a man.”
