New Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has named his toughest opponents while he was still a footballer.

He made this known during an interview with the official website of UEFA (European football’s governing body).

When asked about the toughest players he faced during his football career, Lampard mentioned Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi whom he described as the most incredible player.

He went on to mention ex-Barcelona midfielders Xavi Hernandez and Andreas Iniesta.

According to Frank Lampard, it was always difficult to dispossess Xavi and Iniesta during his playing days.

Lampard became a manager last summer after his appointment as the Derby County manager.

He spent one season only at Derby County where he made his presence felt.

Frank Lampard led Derby County to the English Championship playoffs before his team lost 2-1 to Aston Villa in the final as they lost the Premier League slot to the Villa Park outfit.

His sparkling outing at Derby County encouraged Chelsea to name him as their new manager once Maurizio Sarri left Stamford Bridge to take up the Juventus managerial job.

Frank Lampard took charge of his first competitive game as a Chelsea manager and it didn’t end well after they were beaten 4-0 by Manchester United.
