Official: Derby County appoint Frank Lampard as new manager

Derby County has announced on their official website that they have appointed Frank Lampard as their new manager.

Frank Lampard have been working for BT Sport as a pundit since hanging up his boot as a football player. Though Lampard doesn't have any experience as a coach but Derby believe his experience as a player can lead the team to glory.

Frank Lampard will be assited by Chelsea youth coach Jody Morris and they will both strive to get Derby County back to the Premier League after being absent for almost 10 years.

After signing the contract, Lampard reveal his excitement and also reveal he has always wanted to manage a club with big tradition  and history like Derby County.

'I have spent considerable time discussing the role and the club's objectives with the Chairman and board members,' he said

'We want to build on the club's top six finish in the Championship last season, while at the same time bringing through some of the excellent youth and Academy talent we have at Pride Park.'

'This is my first job as a manager, but I've worked closely with some of the best coaches in the game and I'm confident in my own abilities and those of the team around me, including the board.'

'I know it won't be easy - managing a football team never is - but I'm really looking forward to the challenge ahead.'

We wish Frank Lampard all the best in Derby County and we hope he gets them back to the Premier League very soon.
