Frank Lampard has revealed he is a big admirer of Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino and wishes to replicate the Argentine’s managerial style when he becomes a manager.

Lampard, 38, retired as a player back in February after a 21-year career, most spent at Stamford Bridge. However, the former-Blues midfielder has revealed when he does step into a managerial role, Pochettino is an example of how he wishes to be.

Lampard has been tipped to take over as Chelsea manager one day, however, with Antonio Conte’s first season setting a new Premier League record of wins, 30, it’s likely it won’t be for a while before Super Frank sees himself in the Chelsea dugout.

“I want to manage,” he said speaking to The Times. “Most of my career I wasn’t sure but when I got into my thirties I became a lot more interested.”

“As much as I’m interested in coaching, I’ve just as much interest in how to deal with people.

“I see someone like Mauricio Pochettino and his relationship with players — like both a boss and a bit of a friend — and I love that.”

Lampard has spent a lot of his spare time doing punditry, mainly on BBC, but the Englishman has made appearances on Sky Sports, including Chelsea’s win at the Hawthorns before their title crowning against Sunderland. The Football Asociation is helping the 38-year-old with his coaching qualifications, meaning it may not be too far away before we see Lampard in his first managerial stint.
