Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has dinner with wife Christine as explosive Liverpool touchline row saga rumbles on

FRANK LAMPARD put aside his row with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp to enjoy a meal with wife and TV star Christine.

The Chelsea boss came in for criticism after his stunning outburst at the Reds’ coaching staff on Wednesday during his side’s 5-3 loss.

Klopp reignited the row with the Blues boss by saying the rookie boss should have not continued the issue after the match by raising it again in his press conference.

The former England midfielder told one of Klopp’s assistants to “f*** off” several times during the defeat, also telling him to “f****** sit down”.

He had accused Pep Lijnders of being arrogant after the referee wrongly awarded Liverpool a free-kick which led to their second goal through Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The loss left Chelsea‘s Champions League qualification hopes hanging by a thread ahead of tomorrow’s crucial match with Europe-chasing Wolves.

Lampard, 42, admitted later he was wrong to swear so much as he said it had been seen on social media by his young daughters.

Klopp laid into Lamps yesterday.

He said: “You cannot hit me with something like that, and my bench, because we are not arrogant.

“Frank was obviously in a really competitive mood and I respect that a lot.

“You can pretty much, from my point of view, in a situation like this say what you want. But after the game it’s completely over.

“I’ve said a lot in the past, and because it’s pure emotion, we’re really involved.

“He came here for a win to make sure of Champions League qualification.

“What he has to learn is to finish it with the final whistle, and he didn’t do that. Speaking afterwards about it, that’s not okay.

“Frank has to learn, he has a lot of time to learn, he’s a young coach.

“During the game, words used, no problem at all. We are not arrogant, we are pretty much the opposite of it.”

But Lamps, who escaped a club fine for his outburst, tried to forget about the rumpus by enjoying a meal at the expensive club.

Wife Christine, 41, looked stunning as she headed into Annabel’s.

Lampard, however, looked like a man with the weight of the world on his shoulders.

Working for a boss with the sacking ratio of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, you can see why.

If the Blues lose tomorrow and crash into the Europe League, the ex-Derby chief could be picking up his P45.
