Chelsea midfielder, Jorginho has hit out at Former blues manager Frank Lampard stating that “he wasn’t ready” to take the job after he was sacked back in January.
Lampard was given the job to manage the North London side back in 2019 as the Blues parted ways with Maurizio Sarri and entered into the new season with a transfer ban.
He utilized the squad he had, whilst losing the club’s and Premier League’s best player in Eden Hazard in the same summer, but managed to guide Chelsea to a top-four finish in his first season. Lampard also reached the FA Cup final, which ended in defeat.
After a summer spree of in excess of £200 million and a good start to the 2020/21 campaign, Chelsea’s formed dipped over the Christmas period and Lampard was dismissed at the end of January and replaced by Thomas Tuchel, with the blues sitting in ninth in the Premier League table.
Jorginho has made a brave claim, which will split the already divided opinion on the Italian across the fanbase, stating Lampard simply wasn’t ready for the job.
“Look, I’ll be really sincere here on Lampard. I believe, given he was a legend at the club, he skipped some steps necessary for learning before moving to a big club,” Jorginho told ESPN Brasil’s Resenha.
“He came to a club where he is a legend, without having experience at other clubs. I think he came too soon, skipped a few steps ahead and wasn’t ready for a job at this level, to be honest.”
