England legends as managers - How have they fared in their first roles?

Frank Lampard has taken over as the new manager of Championship side Derby County.

The ex-Chelsea star will take his first steps into management with the Rams, and becomes the second England legend to take his first managerial role this season.

Steven Gerrard, Lampard’s former midfield partner, is also about to take his first steps into senior management by taking over at Scottish giants Rangers.

The former Liverpool star had been working as a youth coach at his boyhood club but he’s decided to head north of the border to become the latest man to try and get Rangers back on track.

Being a great footballer doesn’t always lead to an ex-player becoming a great manager, but there have been cases where former England stars have gone on to do well as managers.

In honour of the appointments of both Gerrard and Lampard, we’ve taken a look at how some other players who once wore the Three Lions did in their first attempts as managers.
