Lampard hails 'fantastic' McClaren

Frank Lampard would welcome the appointment of Steve McClaren as the new England manager and believes he would do a 'fantastic' job.

The Football Association are expected to reveal McClaren as Sven-Goran Eriksson's successor later today.

McClaren has guided Middlesbrough into the UEFA Cup final and will work as Eriksson's assistant at this summer's World Cup, having become a familiar member of England's coaching team.

He may have been the FA's second choice behind Brazilian Luiz Felipe Scolari, but Lampard is a fan.

Lampard said: 'I know Steve McClaren from working with him and I have no doubt if he does get the job he would be fantastic.

'Steve McClaren is a very good coach. On the training field he is fantastic. When he speaks he makes sense straight away. It is a great thing when you work under someone like that because you always feel like you are working.

'What we are looking for is the best manager for the job, not just for myself but for the good of the team.

'Steve McClaren has a lot of views, be it on the training ground where he has a massive input or in the dressing room where if something needs to be said he will say it.

'Fortunately we have had a lot of success in qualifying games but there have been times - Northern Ireland away springs to mind - where things have needed to be said and Steve McClaren and the manager [Eriksson] have said it.

'What he has done with Middlesbrough this season has been fantastic. Getting to the UEFA Cup final like they have done has been great.'

Lampard denied being approached by the FA for his views on the shortlisted candidates.

He has been following the selection process in the newspapers over the last month, but has hardly been sweating on the decision.

Lampard added: 'It's not like I am desperate to find out who it is so I can settle my mind. It is just one of those things you get fed up reading about.

'It doesn't matter to me whether it comes today, tomorrow or next week. But it would be good so we can concentrate on the matter in hand which is the World Cup.'
