Derby County head coach Frank Lampard could leave the club at the end of the season according to a report from The Times via Derbyshire Live.
Lampard has been the Rams manager since the start of the season, taking over from Gary Rowett who left to become the Stoke City head coach. He has done fairly well in his first managerial job as well with Derby currently in 8th spot in the Sky Bet Championship though many would rather them be in the play-offs at this point of the season. Lampard has also been in the headlines as the man who initially called Marcelo Bielsa out for sending a spy to their training ground.
But Lampard’s time at the club may be over at the end of the season with the former England international willing to quit in the summer. This report says he will take stock in the summer and come to a decision about his future with the East Midlands club which will depend on the club’s position in the league and the ownership situation. The report also suggests Lampard may have had offers from elsewhere.
The situation with the ownership has been in doubt recently. Owner Mel Morris has admitted that he can no longer invest the same amount of money he has done in recent seasons and has suggested that he may sell the club soon. With Morris being the man who persuaded Lampard to take his first role in management, his departure might mean that Lampard goes too.
