Lampard’s life without a bench: between the NBA and Atalanta

Lampard’s life without a bench: between the NBA and Atalanta

Frank Lampard is still waiting for the opportunity to return to the bench. Since Chelsea withdrew from his services almost a year ago, the English manager has been off the pitch.

In all this time, Lampard has negotiated with both Crystal Palace, in the summer, and Norwich City, in recent weeks, although finally the ‘canaries’ bet on Dean Smith.

Time has put his work at Chelsea in perspective, a club from which he left after five defeats in eight games but after having qualified for the Champions League in the middle of a UEFA sanction that prevented reinforcing the squad, and also just after having sold Eden Hazard.

Meanwhile, Lampard continues to train as a technician waiting for a new job. As published by The Telegraph, the former English footballer has studied several European teams and has fallen in love with the game and the style of Atalanta, which he considers “very interesting”.

On the other hand, he has also spent time talking with elite coaches, not only from the world of football but also basketball: Steve KerrLegendary NBA coach is one of those who has shared ideas with Lampard in recent months.

Lampard’s next bench will be decisive in his coaching career. Having emerged in the second division at Derby County, his time at Chelsea did not end in the best possible way, although the progress made under his tenure is appreciated.

It wasn’t at Crystal Palace and it wasn’t at Norwich either, but the Premier League will open its doors for you sooner rather than later.
