Frank Lampard In The Frame For First Managerial Job

Based on their performances for England together it's a good job Frank Lampard isn't joining Rangers as Steven Gerrard's assistant manager but instead the former Chelsea player is in the frame for a management role of his own.

Everytime a big name player goes into management we have to wonder if being a good player means you'll be such a top manager with the answer most often suggesting that it's not necessarily the case.


Steven Gerrard's move to Rangers could be soon followed by Mikel Arteta taking his first job as manager of Arsenal whilst Patrick Vieira could soon have his first management job in Europe at Nice.

There will be added scrutiny on all of those clubs next season because of the men who are in charge, especially as for two of them it'll be their first time in charge of a senior team.

According to Sky Sports Lampard could be the next big name former Premier League midfielder to get a big job and Chelsea's all time top goalscorer is on the shortlist to be next Ipswich manager and has interviewed twice for the role.

Mick McCarthy was always going to leave the Championship side at the end of the season but after the match with Barnsley in April he abruptly quit his role during his post match press conference, four games earlier than he was meant to be leaving.

The Tractor Boys are hoping to appoint the new man by the end of this month, giving the new man long enough to prepare for next season, as they attempt to halt 17 seasons in the second tier in a row by earning promotion back to the Premier League.

St Mirren manager Jack Ross is another man who could get the job and he recently talked about his future, saying: "I think there has been communication between the clubs, but at the moment I don't know anything more than that.

"At the moment my work and my focus is very much on trying to build a squad that will be progressive here and until that changes it will remain the case.

"This club has been great for me because it has offered me that chance to prove myself in the last 18 months and I want to try and get better. For as long as I'm here, hopefully, that will be the case."

Will Lampard be the next big name to get his first job in management?
