Three EPL jobs Lampard has missed since Chelsea sack revealed

The Aston Villa job is the latest Frank Lampard has missed out on, according to the UK Sun.

Lampard got as far as the interview stage, but eventually lost out to his ex-England teammate Steven Gerrard.

Villa sacked Dean Smith on November 7 and appointed Gerrard four days later.

Dean Smith was fired as Villa boss on 7 November and the club were swift to find a replacement, confirming Gerrard as their new manager just four days later.

However, here was enough time to interview Lampard for the role as well.

Lampard, who was sacked by Chelsea in January, is clearly very much in the thoughts of Premier League owners, having also been interviewed for the Norwich City job, after Daniel Farke was fired.

He ruled himself out of the running for that after speaking to director Stuart Webber and Smith has since taken the job at Carrow Road.

These opportunities came after Lampard was also interviewed as a possible replacement for Roy Hodgson at Crystal Palace over the summer, but the Eagles went for Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira instead.

Lampard is now eyeing the idea of replacing Brendan Rodgers at Leicester City if he ends up replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjær as Manchester United boss.
