Frank Lampard admits wife Christine Bleakley helps him manage his footie stars

Frank Lampard has revealed his TV star wife helps him to manage Chelsea.

The Blues boss asks former One Show host Christine for advice on dealing with troubled players.

Frank, 42, admits he turns to the ex-One Show TV host for help if any are having off-field problems.

The former England ace said: “I throw a lot of things off Christine. I love that I have somebody there who gets working environments – and I love to bounce [things off her] as it’s a different view and opinion.

“I’ve got great staff, but it’s more rounded. Sometimes I say, ‘What do you think about this? I’ve a player who didn’t turn up for training yesterday, but we still probably need him at the weekend. What do you think?’

“And she might go, ‘Yeah, but has he got a girlfriend or wife? Is there a problem? Maybe you should speak to them’. She’s not picking what full back we’ll play, but if I have issues which are lifey… I’m very fortunate to have someone to bounce things off at home.



Frank Lampard’s footie chat can be intense for wife Christine

“I obviously love her very much, but I really respect her for how she’s got on in her career and how diligent she is.” Frank and Christine, 41, met at the Mirror’s Pride of Britain Awards in 2009 and married in 2015.

They have a daughter Patricia, aged two.

Frank told The High Performance Podcast he can sometimes go too far with “intense” football chat at home.

“Christine has a bit of a joke with me at home when we’re watching football all the time and she’s almost fed up.

“She does reflect on the fact that it’s only kicking a ball…”

Frank added that he was “very lucky I have a wife who can tell me to snap out of it and we go on a date night or for dinner.

“Then I have to not talk about football for two or three hours. That’s the balance you have to strike.”
