Alongside Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher, Ian Wright, Roy Keane and Jill Scott, the team talk about the Stamford Bridge heroes’ glorious career as well as the pleasures and pressures that have followed in management.
The three-time Premier League winner speaks about his playing and managerial career at Chelsea as well as their current state having last managed the Blues towards the end of the 2022/23 season.
As a former Everton manager, Frank goes into full length about his time at Goodison Park as well as the current financial state at the club, the FFP restrictions and the impact it had on his former team.
It would be impossible to have Frank around the table without talking about England’s golden generation and the panel also go into full discussion of the mid-2000 rivalry between their respected clubs.
