Former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has hinted he might return to Chelsea ‘in some capacity’.
Following suggestions that the veteran footballer could return to the Stamford Bridge in a coaching role, the 38-year-old has coyed on his next move in his footballing career.
‘Myself and John 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,’ Lampard said.
‘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.
‘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.’
