Familiarity making life easier for Lampard
Frank Lampard is settling into his managerial role at Chelsea quickly and puts it down to the familiarity of being at Stamford Bridge.
The 41-year-old is building towards his first competitive game at the helm after returning to Chelsea following a first managerial campaign in charge of Derby.
Lampard's pre-season has been a mixed bag so far, winning just one of his three games, but he insists he is settling back into life with the west London club.
The former midfielder feels the familiarity of being around Stamford Bridge has made the transition easier and hopes that works in his favour as the season develops.
Lampard told the Daily Mail: "It did feel good. It has felt good to be back.
"It's certainly a benefit to know the building so well and a lot of faces in the building made it not so much of a first-day-of-school feeling."
