Ferdinand explains why he stopped talking and considers Lampard as the biggest enemy of his career

According to Rio Ferdinand, he and Frank Lampard lost contact because of their “obsession with winning as many titles as possible.” This is the justification offered by Rio Ferdinand.

Around the same time, both of the British players were rising through the ranks at West Ham United, and they got along well with one another. Both of them were climbing the club’s levels and making advancements at the same time. After leaving the Hammers, their professional paths would eventually cross once more, with Ferdinand playing for Manchester United and Lampard spearheading Chelsea’s attack. Ferdinand was currently a Manchester United player at this time. For Chelsea, Lampard was running the offense. Ferdinand, though, will play for Manchester United rather than Real Madrid in this match. The Hammers were the team where both of the men’s playing careers got their start.

The most notable epic battles they were both a part of occurred in the 2000s, when their respective clubs were battling it out for the Premier League championship. They both took part in some of the most cherished Premier League games. They both participated in a number of important confrontations that occurred during that time. Ferdinand acknowledged that their friendship and relationship had grown strained over time due to the tremendous rivalry and competition that had been going on between them. This was a result of the circumstances.

Ferdinand responded, “It undoubtedly [affect your friendships],” when asked by BT Sport whether or if competitions have an impact on relationships that exist outside the field of play.

It is well known that throughout the pivotal years of our careers, Frank Lampard and I worked together at West Ham. We both experienced those years together, thus they can be regarded as joint experiences.

Because of our various relocations, we are no longer in contact with one another. He currently plays for Chelsea, whilst I currently represent Manchester United. There were no repercussions as a direct result of the incident, and the subject was never brought up for debate.

Both sportsmen went on to enjoy successful careers in their respective sports, careers that are still well-known today, and both of them have received a great lot of acclaim for their achievements. Rio Ferdinand is currently employed by the British television network BT Sport as a game commentator. Rio Ferdinand rapidly made the switch to the world of commentary once his playing career as a soccer player was over, and he is currently employed in this sector.

For a while, Lampard dabbled with the realm of punditry, but in the end, he made the decision to pursue a career in management. Since then, he has led Derby County, Chelsea, and most recently Everton before being fired in January following the Toffees’ 2-0 away loss to West Ham United. He was in charge of Derby County before to it. Since then, he has held managerial positions at Derby County, Chelsea, and Everton, making a total of three clubs. After that, in that order, he went on to manage Derby County, Chelsea, and Everton. He now serves as Everton’s manager.

It’s unclear where Lampard will play soccer in the future after enduring a very difficult season with the Merseysiders. After Lampard spent the previous season with the team, this has happened.
