Frank Lampard: Norwich hold talks with former Chelsea boss

Last update on. From the section Norwich
Frank Lampard was previously the manager of Chelsea and Derby.

As they seek to replace Daniel Farke, Norwich City held talks with Frank Lampard.

The ex-england international is 43 and one of many candidates that the club has spoken to regarding the position.

However, it is unlikely that any announcement regarding who will be taking over the reins of the company will be made until after the weekend or early next weeks.

Lampard is no longer in management after his 18-month stint as Chelsea's manager ended last January with his dismissal.

With five points from 11 matches, Norwich is currently bottom of the Premier League. Their next game against Southampton will be on 20 November.

After a win over Brentford on Saturday, Farke was fired. This was the club’s first league victory of the campaign.

On Friday, the club's players will be back in training with Steve Weaver, head of football development.

Lampard led Chelsea to fourth and the FA Cup final in his first season as manager. A 3-1 win over Leeds in December 2020 was enough to propel them to the top of the Premier League. However, they fell to ninth the month after he was fired.

As the club was under a transfer embargo and he did not sign any players during his first season, he spent more than PS200m to buy seven major arrivals in 2020. This included PS45m on Leicester's Ben Chilwell, and PS71m for Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz.

Lampard was the Derby manager for one season before taking over at Chelsea. He led them to the Championship play off final where they lost to Aston Villa.
