For Frank Lampard, being manager of Chelsea - the club he loves - means everything to him. And, as part of a six-part special on The 5th Stand app, you can follow the journey of his first season in charge through the words and emotions of the boss.
The head coach sat down to reflect on his first campaign as head coach at Stamford Bridge, revealing all and speaking honestly and from the heart, when promoting ‘Frank Lampard: Coming Home’, our brand-new boxset which launches on August 19th.
‘My first season back at Chelsea, in management, has been a crazy one for many reasons,’ explained our head coach, taken from the ‘Coming Home’ trailer.
‘There were many challenges that I knew faced us coming into the job at the start of the season. So, to achieve Champions League football for next season gave me lots of really positive feelings for how we can move forward from here and continue to improve.
‘There were some really tough moments along the way. I was very upset after the FA Cup final, because I know what it means to Chelsea to win competitions like this.
‘But I think when I look back and reflect, the biggest feeling that comes through for me is the fact that I’m back here, managing the club that I love.’
This is the story of Super Frank’s first season in charge of the Blues, the club he loves, charting the highs and lows in a special six -part documentary boxset.
