Chelsea boss Lampard: Redknapp and Ancelotti positive influences

New Chelsea boss Frank Lampard says he uses things he learned from Carlo Ancelotti and Harry Redknapp in management.

Lampard also credits Italian coach Ancelotti for opening his eyes to a different way of management, as well as his own uncle Redknapp at West Ham.

“Carlo was a fantastic man-manager who made you very ­comfortable to work for him. And Harry was so influential in my early years, too," he told PFA magazine 4 The Player.

“I'm just lucky that I had so many positive influences and you can take snippets from all of them.

“In my 20s, I wasn't so crazy about going into coaching, but, as soon as I hit 30 and wondered 'What next?', I started to be more thoughtful about the influences in my career."
