Lampard gets warning over managerial career
- Frank Lampard leads Derby County for the first time in the Championship on Friday against Reading
- The opponents' boss Paul Clement claims it's not easy to adapt to a new role
- Clement, however, insists the Blues' legend will, without a doubt, become a brilliant manager
Clement told the media, as quoted by the Express: "I had 16, 17 years working at youth level, did all the licenses, was an assistant at senior level for seven years.
"But nothing quite prepares you for when you’re on the line, you’re responsible for picking the team, doing the changes, it’s what you say and you have to go through that.
"After I had worked with him at Chelsea, Frank embarked on his badges and I know last season he did that quite aggressively and he went into Chelsea to get some practice. You can prepare yourself the best you can. But nothing quite prepares you for it.
"I have got no doubt that Frank will be good – not because he played at a high level – but because, if you talk to him about football, and you see what he is like on the TV, the way he gets his message across which is very important.
"He has brilliant knowledge of the game; some players have played at a high level but still don’t have a great knowledge of the game. He does, and he is able to transmit that information well because he speaks very articulately.
"I have no doubt he is going to be a success – just hopefully not on the first day of the season."
