Former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard remains relaxed over his future after leaving MLS side New York City but discussed openly a potential return to the club.
Much speculation has linked the 38-year-old midfielder with a romantic return to Stamford Bridge in a coaching capacity, however, Lampard, who was sitting alongside Chelsea captain John Terry on the Soccer AM sofa, refused to explain any details of his next move.
‘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.’
