Meanwhile, despite playing under world-class tacticians during his active days, Lampard is not ruling out the contributions of his wife whom he married in 2015 as reported by Daily Mail.
"I do throw a lot of things off Christine," the legendary former midfielder said.
"She's not picking what full-back we're going to play that weekend but at the same time, if I have certain issues which are life issues - and actually football issues sometimes - I can definitely go home.'
"I go, "Christine, what do you think about this problem: I've got a player here and he didn't turn up for training yesterday. But we still probably need him on the weekend, what do you think?'''
"And she goes: "Does he have a girlfriend, a wife? Is there a problem? Have you spoken to them? Maybe you should speak to them."
"So she's not my life coach as such, but I'm very fortunate to have someone to bounce things off of at home."
