JT VS LAMPS FOR CHERRIES?
Frank Lampard and John Terry will always share a bond.
As vice-captain and captain, they were the generals that led Chelsea to the most successful period in their history.
But now as young coaches, they find themselves in direct competition.
They’ve already done battle, with Aston Villa assistant manager Terry, 40, having stared down the touchline at his old mate Lampard, 42, during the former midfielder’s stints with both Derby County and Chelsea.
But now that Lamps has been brutally axed by the Blues he finds himself back in the job market… potentially to JT’s detriment. SunSport understands that both are in consideration for the vacant Bournemouth job, following Jason Tindall’s sacking this week.
Two years Terry’s senior, Lampard has more experience in the dugout to date, having managed 141 matches across his two jobs so far.
Terry did manage to get his hands on two further Premier League titles following Lampard’s 2014 Stamford Bridge exit, however, and may be helped by those experiences playing under Antonio Conte and working under Dean Smith.
Despite both being in their forties, each likes to upload to Instagram – with JT’s account the marginally more popular. The former England skipper boasts 5.4million followers, compared to Lampard’s 4.5m.
