Ex-Liverpool star joins sixth-tier English club after Lampard ‘went for him’

Footballer Andre Wisdom has a new club after being unveiled as a new signing for sixth-tier English football side Warrington Town.

Formerly a defender for Liverpool, Derby County, West Bromwich Albion, Norwich City and Red Bull Salzburg, Wisdom has been signed by Warrington ahead of their weekend home clash against King's Lynn Town in the National League North. The 30-year-old has been without a club since 2021 when he left Derby County, but has had trials with a number of clubs, including Portsmouth and Sheffield United.

The Yellows are managed by Mark Beesley, who will be hoping to make a better impression on Wisdom than his former boss Frank Lampard did during their time together at Derby County. Lampard managed the Rams for one season during the 2018/19 Championship season, getting them to Wembley for the play-off final which they lost to Aston Villa 2-1.

From there, he was appointed Chelsea boss after they sacked Maurizio Sarri. And while it was thought that he left Derby on good terms, Wisdom has previously spoken about how he was not a fan of the legendary England midfielder.

Speaking to 'The Beautiful Game Podcast' back in May, Wisdom revealed Lampard once "screamed in his face", going after him in a manner that he felt was a bit too personal. "I've had one manager scream at me and it was Lampard," began Wisdom.

How would you react if Frank Lampard 'went for' you? Let us know in the comments section below.

"We got smashed by, 4-0 I think, and I said some comments after the game and then he just went in. But it was nothing to do really with football, it was more about me as a person which was very strange to me.

“He said some things that were just very strange. For instance, when someone says 'I'm not scared of you'. He said I walked slow, he said I bully people."

Wisdom added: "My experience? It was weird, it was very, very weird. It didn't feel like I was at football, and I think what kind of threw me was the fact that it was Frank Lampard.

"I don't want you to misinterpret it like I was in awe… far from it. Far from. I think I expected something that I wasn't getting. I expected more from him as a man."
