‘Frank has done better, I have to say’: Manchester United legend Roy Keane says Lampard’s debut season as Chelsea manager edges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s campaign with Manchester United after both reach the top four
- Roy Keane said Frank Lampard has done a better job than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
- The two bosses both guided their sides into the Champions League places
- Keane believes Lampard has performed well considering he made no signings
Manchester United legend Roy Keane believes Frank Lampard has done a better job than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season.
Lampard and Solskjaer both guided their sides into the top four on the final day of the season after wins over Wolves and Leicester respectively.
But Keane believes the Blues boss has performed wonders in his debut season considering he was unable to sign players last summer and lost his best player in Eden Hazard to Real Madrid.

‘Frank’s done a better job, I have to say,’ admitted the former United midfielder on Sky Sports.
‘I expect them to be there or thereabouts, but the way they’ve played, the way Frank comes across, he comes across really well.
‘There’s no nonsense about him, he’s made big decisions, he’s brought a lot of young players in, good players, good quality, but they’ve needed an opportunity, they took it.
‘They finished in the top four and obviously if they can win an FA Cup, great achievement.

‘But as Frank is reminding everybody, he’s not getting too carried away getting in the top four, but it’s huge step forward for Chelsea again.’
Solskjaer, whose side finished about Chelsea on goal difference, spent £190million this season and that has helped his side qualify for next season’s Champions League.
Lampard has not had any new recruits to call on during the campaign but will have new signings Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech next season.
Werner was in the stands at Stamford Bridge on Sunday as he got his first look at his new team-mates.
The German striker may be joined by compatriot Kai Havertz, with the Bayer Leverkusen star heavily linked with a summer move to the club.
