Former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard wants to work for a 'huge club' as Blues legend sets sights on return to managementMay 19, 2021
FRANK LAMPARD has set his sights on working for a ‘huge club’ again.
Chelsea sacked the club legend in January but he is energised after time at home with his wife Christine and their kids.
He told the Daily Telegraph: “What I wake up with every day is: ‘I want to work again’.
“I love the idea of trying to improve individuals or a squad. I’ve become addicted to that.
“The minute I stepped into Derby to this minute now, it’s something I feel compelled to do. I want to manage a huge club again and I want to manage it to success.”
Asked if he would ever return as Chelsea boss like Jose Mourinho did, Lampard replied: “Everyone knows how I feel about Chelsea and that will never change.
“But there may be other opportunities along the way.”
Lampard admits he was blown away by owner Roman Abramovich making a rare public statement to praise him when he was booted out.
He added: “I loved that. I could never sit here and say I have anything but appreciation for what he did for my career.
“I was disappointed, I felt we could change things. Your pride takes a hit.

"But I would have been naive to think it would be any different for myself than past managers.”
Thomas Tuchel has guided Chelsea to the Champions League and FA Cup finals, as well as back into the top four.
Lampard added: “People at Chelsea tell me he’s a top bloke and he’s done some really positive things with the team.”
