Delighted Frank Lampard Speaks After His Team Knocked Man United Out Of EFL Cup
Derby County manager, Frank Lampard, has said he was shell-shocked after his side knocked Manchester United out of the Carabao Cup on penalties.
Scott Carson saved from Phil Jones, to earn the Championship side a place in the fourth round, winning 8-7 at spot kicks after a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford.
Lampard, in his first season as a manager, triumphed against former boss Jose Mourinho despite Marouane Fellaini’s late headed equaliser.
“I’m shell-shocked. What a performance.
“To go down early at Old Trafford and play as well as they did was superb. We had the personality to take penalties and play the way we did. I am a proud manager.
“It was the easiest selection I have had, the players were superb against Brentford [in Saturday’s 3-1 Championship win] and they deserved the chance to play at Old Trafford.
“I wanted to bring a team who could really compete. I am so proud of them. I am trying to build a group to be successful and nights like this are incredible. To go against world-class players and play that way, it’s right up there,” Lampard said to Sky Sports.
