Roy Keane claims ‘no-nonsense’ Lampard has had better season than Solskjaer despite Man Utd finishing above Chelsea


ROY KEANE believes “no nonsense” Frank Lampard had a better season than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Manchester United legend gave the nod to Lamps despite Chelsea finishing below the Red Devils in the table.

Chelsea saw off Wolves 2-0 on the final day of the season to guarantee fourth spot and Champions League football.

Solskjaer had a more stressful afternoon at the King Power stadium, where United eventually beat Leicester 2-0 as well.

But Keane explained Lampard having to deal with a transfer ban and the loss of Eden Hazard meant he did better given the circumstances.

Keane – who scowled at Aston Villa’s celebrations after staying up – told Sky Sports: “Frank’s done a better job, I have to say.

“I expect them to be there or thereabouts, but the way they’ve played, the way Frank comes across – he comes across really well.

“There’s no nonsense about him. He’s made big decisions.

“He’s brought a lot of young players in, good players, good quality… but they’ve needed an opportunity, they took it.

“They finished in the top four and obviously if they can win an FA Cup, great achievement.

“But as Frank is reminding everybody, he’s not getting too carried away getting in the top four, but it’s a huge step forward for Chelsea again.”

Lampard will definitely fancy his chances of leapfrogging United next season.

Bruno Fernandes has been a revelation for United and they are looking to buy Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish this summer.

But Chelsea have already acquired Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner – who had his first training session at Cobham today.

Bayer Leverkusen winger Kai Havertz is another who could be on his way, with talks between Leverkusen and Chelsea “getting hot”.
