“He will feel that he was pretty harshly treated” – Alan Shearer claims Frank Lampard was ‘used’ by Chelsea


Chelsea legend Frank Lampard is back into management after taking over proceedings in the Everton dugout. This is his third job since he first started at Championship side Derby County back in 2018. After a successful season with the Rams, the Blues swooped in and offered their legend a job at the club.

However, Lampard wasn't able to deliver on the high expectations that the Chelsea job demands and was sacked after a season and a half in January 2021. The west London club definitely do not regret that decision one bit.

Thomas Tuchel immediately improved their team and helped them to a Champions League title in just six months. It was a sad end for the former Chelsea midfielder as boss, given his legendary status at the club. The fans wished that he would succeed but the results had stopped coming after a point.

The Premier League's all-time top scorer Alan Shearer , who often appears as a pundit, always spoke encouragingly of Lampard when he was managing the Blues. The legendary striker came out in support of the former midfielder turned manager while speaking to Premier League productions .

"He will feel that he was pretty harshly treated at Chelsea. Perhaps he feels that he was used at Chelsea, for who he was and the situation that they were in."

When Lampard arrived at the west London club in 2019, a transfer ban was imposed on the club for having players under the permitted age on trial without their proper registration. Shearer thinks that despite this handicap, the former Chelsea boss has done a decent job in his time at the Premier League giants.

"I think he did a reasonable job, given the circumstances, when he couldn’t sign and he had to play a few of the youngsters. And they were successful for him."

The former Newcastle United striker has backed the 43-year-old to use his experience from his previous jobs, put it to good use at Everton and succeed. He said:

"I think he could do a good job at Everton and he will certainly want to."
