According to information from The Telegraph newspaper, Crystal Palace has made Frank Lampard his priority as coach to succeed Roy Hodgson at the end of the season.
The Premier League could very soon find Frank Lampard. According to information from The Telegraph newspaper, the former Chelsea manager is the number one choice of leaders at Crystal Palace to succeed Roy Hodgson at the end of the season. He would be at the top of a shortlist also including the names of Sean Dyche (Burnley) and Eddie Howe (ex-Bournemouth).
After saying no to the England Under-21 squad, Lampard is said to have yet to make his choice on Crystal Palace. In no hurry, the ex-midfielder (42 years old) would give himself time to reflect, remaining attentive to other possible proposals.
Palace, current 13th in the Premier League
Appointed at the head of Chelsea in July 2019, for his first experience in the elite of English football after a season spent in Derby County which played in the Championship, Lampard had led the club to fourth place in the championship, qualifying for the League of champions. The rest went less well with disappointing results and therefore a dismissal in January 2021.
Since his ouster, the one who was replaced by Thomas Tuchel in the Blues has revealed to have refused “flattering” offers. At Crystal Palace, he would have the opportunity to relaunch his coaching career in a club with a priori higher ambitions than his current 13th place suggests.
The Eagles have reportedly budgeted around 60 million euros for the upcoming summer transfer window. And they are already thinking of loaning some Chelsea players, including Billy Gilmour and Tammy Abraham, if Lampard comes.
