Frank Lampard and Andrea Pirlo could return to their respective club in future with a point to prove

Football and club legends, Frank Lampard and Andrea Pirlo could found their way back to their respective clubs in future after their time in charge as a manager for Chelsea and Juventus respectively did not work out as expected.

Frank Lampard in charge of Chelsea parted ways with the club late January while Andrea Pirlo was disengaged after the end of the last season with both been succeeded by Thomas Tuchel and Massimiliano Allegri respectively.

However, despite their contracts coming to an end prematurely, they both have a few positive things they left behind in their respective clubs.

In the case of Andrea Pirlo, it was him that wanted Juventus to sign Federico Chiesa from Fiorentina instead of Houssem Aouar from Olympique Lyonnaise.

Federico Chiesa was then taken on loan from fellow Italian club Fiorentina and he's now arguably the best player at Juventus having been delivering at the top notch for the Old Lady this season across all competitions, filling the vacuum left behind after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United.

In the case of Frank Lampard, it was the English manager that promoted Mason Mount into the Chelsea's first team after bringing him back from a loan spell at Derby County where they were both together from the period of 2018 and 2019.

Frank Lampard so much believed in his potentials despite all the favouritism criticism surrounding the situation then, and now the England youngster has become a very key player at the Stamford Bridge.

Mason Mount has formed an integral part of the squad paraded by the German tactician, Thomas Tuchel since his arrival at the London club playing major roles in his team's success to emerge the Champions of Europe in the last season Porto's all-English mouthwatering UCL final against Pep Guardiola's Manchester City team.

His great influx of delivery for his boyhood club in the last season made him to be voted as the Club's Men Player of the Year, and has also keep the brilliant run of form going so far this season for the Blues.

Hopefully, these two football and club legends could return to their respective clubs as a manager in the nearest future this time around with more experience and a point to prove.
