Yes, Frank Lampard may be a rookie when it comes to football management but it would seem advice is not something he will be short of when he takes up the reigns at Derby County following his World Cup roles with the BBC.

Frank has 21 years of senior football as a player to call upon, playing at the highest level of the game and with some of the Worlds greatest players but football management is a different thing altogether.

He starts out with little or no real management credentials but has a family and friends who could be of infinite help to Lampard. His Uncle, for instance, is Harry Redknapp and what Harry doesn’t know about football management isn’t worth knowing. Franks own father and namesake, Frank Lampard senior, he has had a decent playing career and has played International football for England, he also has had time as an assistant manager under Harry Redknapp at West Ham. Frank senior also worked as a football consultant to Brendan Rodgers at Watford.

Lampard’s Cousin, Jamie Redknapp also has football coursing through his veins and could possibly be called upon to give his views, he has been the coach at Chelsea reserves after Brendan Rodgers (see above), moved to take up the managers job at Watford. So Frank isn’t going to be short of advice, should he need it.

One of the most bizarre offers to mentor Frank has been from Derby County former manager Gary Rowett. Rowett left the Rams managers job recently after having financial concerns and his ability to manage the Rams with a reduced budget, so I am not quite sure just what advice a rival Championship manager would give to Lampard, but nice of him to offer.
