Frank Lampard has broken his silence for the first time since his Chelsea sacking revealing that he’s been received some mouth watering deals to return to management.
Lampard’s 18-month tenure at Stamford Bridge came to an end in January following a run of five defeats in eight Premier League games which brought the Blues to ninth on the table.
Lampard is not bitter over his Chelsea exit but has been enjoying time away from the game with his family and loved ones.
The 42-year-old has been linked with several managerial roles in recently, which includes the England Under-21s job, as well as Crystal Palace and Celtic.
And Lampard has confirmed he’s already received several approaches since being fired by his beloved Blues, but none of which have felt ‘the right thing’ to pursue.
“I’ve had some opportunities that have come up in the last six weeks, two months, that have been amazing but not the right thing,” Lampard said in an exclusive Q & A ahead of this month’s London Football Awards in support of Willow Foundation.
“Nobody wants to lose their job and come out of the game you love, but at the same time … when you go into this career, this will happen, no matter how good you think you are or whatever circumstances you are in.”
On his Chelsea tenure, Lampard added: “I’m absolutely appreciative of the opportunity I had to manage Chelsea.
