Frank Lampard Concerned About Jose Mourinho At Old Trafford
Former Jose Mourinho boy Frank Lampard was in charge of Derby County, when they came up against Manchester United in the Carabao Cup, a game that saw him best his former Boss via penalty shootout.
Manchester United came into that game with a draw with Wolves and after the game lost 3 – 1 to West Ham United in the weekend, which has prompted Lampard to offer support and sympathy for his former Boss.
“Everyone knows my feelings for Jose Mourinho as a manager,” Lampard said.
“It is a tough moment. It is a moment that we will all have, that I will have at times, that every manager has.
“I have heard all his interviews lately. He is a big boy. He will get about doing his job. Of course I feel for him. They are not winning games and they want to be – it is Manchester United.”
Lampard thinks Jose Mourinho is finding it difficult to get the best out of the players on pitch, a problem he believes is paramount for a manager.
“In terms of players, it can be difficult. You need buy-in from your players and you need sometimes the right message to be coming out. I thought that as a player and I think it even more as a manager.
“And you need complete work rate on the pitch. I am not talking about individuals here, I am saying that is what you need.”
