Super Frank and Stevie G take the Next Step!

Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard, similar players, similar stature, same generation and after all those similarities both England Legends are taking the next step in their careers at the same time Lampard has been appointed by English Championship side, Derby County and Steven Gerrard have taken over Scottish Premiership Club Rangers. It’s pretty common for former players to go into Management, but it is a step that can often jeopardize your image and respect, being a professional footballer is a tough job, but being a Manager of a football club, that’s a whole other ball game.

Lampard and Gerrard were top players at their time and were excruciatingly similar, English fans used to hope to see both of them perform for the National side together, as they had all the makings of a deadly midfield duo, similar to Iniesta and Xavi(not the same quality). But the duo could never hit the ground running with the National team and fans of both players to this day mock the Midfield stalwarts for not knowing how to play together.

Lampard expressed his excitement in his first press conference, “I’m excited to be of a generation of young managers. In England and Britain, we have possibly been behind in the modern day. We have seen it in Germany and Spain possibly ahead of us, but from my own point of view — and I think this is probably a general rule — we have worked under a lot of different styles of managers and that should only help you gain knowledge. The merry-go-round of older managers isn’t going anywhere, either. I don’t think we should fight against them, you need to just prove yourself capable,” 

Irrespective of whether Lampard and Gerrard go on to become successful managers we need to remember that being a Manager isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, it isn’t just about putting out eleven players on the field in a certain formation and expecting results, tactical understanding, leadership, communication, handling the press and most importantly man management are just some of the few traits of a successful manager. The team’s success and failure will be dependent on the manager’s instincts and decisions, so maybe go easy on these two.

All the best Super Frank and Stevie G! We’ll always back you!

  1. […] Steven George Gerrard is a man widely regarded as the best to wear the famous red shirt, and this is no puny task given the players that have graced the famous Anfield pitch over the years. He lived the Liverpudlian dream. But with the laurels and the plaudits that he earned, came hardships and difficulties but as they say, Its how you overcome hardships that define you and that is exactly what shaped the legend of a man named Steven Gerrard.  […]
