In a recent interview with Sky Sports, Chelsea legend Frank Lampard acknowledged that he was open to the idea of a club return in some capacity.

As reported by SBS:

“”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 told Sky Sports.

“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.

“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.””
