The Rams boss, who was reacting to 'stop crying Frank Lampard' chants, stated that as a Chelsea player he had a rivalry with Leeds but he didn't come up against them because they weren't in the Premier League, as quoted by Derby Telegraph.
Ever since Spygate exploded in January, there has been a rivalry that has grown between the Yorkshire club and the Midlands outfit.
On Wednesday night, there will be a winner because one team will be reaching the play-off final, which will be contested at Wembley later on this month.
Marcelo Bielsa's side hold a one-goal lead over Lampard's side after Kemar Roofe's separated both sides in the first-leg at Pride Park on Saturday.
Here is a selection of Leeds United fans on Twitter reacting to Lampard's savaging comments about his play-off rivals:
Fair play— mary moved out (@Mazzaleeds) May 14, 2019
He’s still crying then I see??— Kayray ⚪️ (@KatieLUFC) May 13, 2019
I’m glad he has fond memories of the premier league. They will keep him warm throughout his long career as a manager at championship level
fair play— Bailey (@BaileyyLUFC) May 13, 2019
Fair play! That’s the spirit! Better than you calling the police onto the training ground “again”— Liam (@liamhall86) May 13, 2019
Decent banter tbf but it has nothing on the banter of Bielsa ripping apart Frank's limited tactics for the league to see. #wedoanalysistoo— Lee Couling (@LeeCouling) May 13, 2019
Good banter, much better than crying about doing analysis too— LeedsLeedsLeeds (@ChrisLUFC1981) May 13, 2019
If Leeds can avoid defeat in front of their own supporters then they will be planning for trips to the capital where they will face Dean Smith's Aston Villa.
The Whites beat Villa at their own ground in December when they overturned their two-goal lead. During the reverse fixture at Elland Road, they both shared the spoils in a highly controversial encounter.
