The former England international is enjoying the winter of his on-field career, after cementing himself as a key player at MLS side New York City this season.
Now 38, the curtain is almost coming down on Lampard’s glittering two decades in elite football, and he seems to be turning his attention to other ventures.
Having become Chelsea’s all-time top scorer, Lampard won just about every competition he could whilst wearing the famous blue shirt, and speaking to Sky Sports via the Evening Standard, he said: “There was a period earlier in my career where I really fancied it, then I thought I don’t fancy the managerial thing.
“Now, I’m back onto it. The problem is I’ve got to get my badges and the hard thing for me is to have time to do it.
“As soon as I finish playing I’d like to take it up and maybe be a manager.
“It’s hard though because I only want the Chelsea job.”
To be fair, at the rate Chelsea go through managers, it won’t be long before they’re left with no option to appoint Lampard – there might be nobody in football left to choose!
But could he cut it in elite management? And, crucially, would he appoint JT as his assistant?! What do you think?
