Roy Keane claims Frank Lampard has done a ‘better job’ at Chelsea than Ole Solskjaer at Manchester United after both teams secured their place in top four on the final day of the campaign.
Chelsea got a 2-0 win over Wolves through goals from Mason Mount and Olivier Giroud to land them a fourth-placed finish in Frank Lampard’s first season as manager at the club.
The former Derby County coach still has a chance to end the season with trophy if they can defeat Arsenal in the FA Cup final.
Solskjaer also had a huge impact in his first full campaign at the theatre of dreams. After a mixed start at United, the Red devils went on a 19-match unbeaten run in all competitions.
United’s 2-0 win against Leicester on Sunday also saw them finish one place above Chelsea in third to secure a place in the Champions League.
But, when asked about Lampard’s achievement, Roy Keane said the Chelsea boss had a bigger influence than Solskjaer.
‘Frank’s probably even done a better job, I have to say,’ admitted the former Republic of Ireland international.

‘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 huge step forward for Chelsea again.’
