Lampard Wants To Return To Chelsea, ‘Still Waiting For The Five-Year Contract’
Lampard was accompanied by Blues skipper John Terry, and the duo spoke in great length about their time together at the club.
Super Frank also joked about how he ‘was still waiting for a five-year contract to come through from Chelsea’.
Although the 38-year-old admitted that no matter what happens he will always stay close to the team.
“I’m still waiting for the five-year contract to come through from Chelsea, they haven’t called yet. We used to get those easily,” he said.
“Myself and John [Terry] are Chelsea through and through. Whatever happens, in some capacity I will be at Chelsea, whether that’s with my season ticket watching them, but I don’t know.”
“I will be in very close contact, whether I have a role, that’s not all in my hands so I can’t go any further than that.”
“I am very relaxed about it, which is a nice place to be. I’m not kind of eager that the end of my career is coming and thinking, ‘What’s going to happen now?”
“I’m relaxed and if the right thing comes, then I’ll take it. Obviously Chelsea, I would love that, but it doesn’t always work that way.”
The former NYCFC star is currently a free agent after leaving the MLS side earlier this month – however he said that he was not tinking abouthis next step just yet and will decide his future after Christmas.
“I’ve taken this Christmas to enjoy family, a couple of beers and an extra turkey and I’ll make a decision in January whether I carry on playing – I have a few options – or finish and move on to whatever the next thing will be.”
Lampard also spoke about his time at Manchester City, revealing that star striker Sergio Aguero would always turn up late for training.
The duo also named their favorite Chelsea managers, with Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti being preffered by both.
