London: Veteran midfielder Frank Lampard has said he would love to manage Chelsea after his playing career is over, and added that he won’t like to manage any other club than the Blues.
“I am thinking about my coaching badges now but there is only one club I want to manage. I know it might sound a bit big-headed or selfish but I wouldn’t want to go through ‘showing myself’ with a lower club,”
“Although I would never expect to walk into a position such as the Chelsea manager, this is the only club I’d want to manage,” he added.
Lampard, who is in the final season of his Chelsea contract and hopes to sign a new one to take him to the end of his playing career, fears his move into management could destroy his Stamford Bridge legacy if he fails to make the grade.
“I’d love to have a crack at it but I’d want to do it well. I wouldn’t want the supporters to forget everything I’ve tried to do as a player because I can’t manage the team,” Lampard said.
