Chelsea star Jorginho believes that work at The Blues proved too fast, too fast for Frank Lampard, whom the Brazilian claims did not have the necessary experience for such a post.
The Englishman was named coach of the London team in 2019 after a single year at Derby County in the Championship.
And while he had a good debut season at Stamford Bridge, a string of disappointing results this edition saw him lose his job in January.
“Look, I’ll be really honest here in Lampard. “I believe, since he was a legend at the club, he went through some necessary steps to learn before transferring to a big club,” Jorginho told ESPN Brazil.
“He came to a club where he is a legend, without having experience in other clubs. “I think he came very quickly, took a few steps forward and was not ready for a job at this level, to be honest,” added the midfielder.
Lampard was an idol at Stamford Bridge, where he spent more than a decade after a transfer from West Ham in 2001.
The midfielder made over 600 appearances for Chelsea and scored more than 200 goals, while leading the club to three Premier League and Champions League titles in the 2011-12 season. /Telegraph/
