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."
