Lampard is under huge pressure at Stamford Bridge and his lack of experience has been highlighted.
“I think people in our position get questioned on Frank,” Carragher explained. “In that we played with him, if this was a different manager we’d be a lot more critical. They’re right.
“And I’d be a lot more critical of managers on that list [former Chelsea managers]. Not because I played with Frank Lampard because I don’t expect Frank Lampard to win the league at Chelsea.
“I don’t expect him to win the Champions League. The other managers who come in with CVs, they’ve got years of experience, they’ve won the big trophies. Mourinho comes in, Hiddink, Ancelotti – all these great managers. So I would be more critical of them.
