After his unveiling to the world’s media as Chelsea’s new head coach, Frank Lampard admitted returning to Stamford Bridge was a huge opportunity he couldn’t turn down
He said he was under no illusions about the work ahead, claiming that past success in his playing career would be quickly forgotten once he moved into the dugout in SW6.
‘Everyone knows my links to the club,’ he said. ‘I don’t want to label it as the ‘dream job’ but everyone knows how I feel towards the club. I love this club and I want to do my best for this club. Hopefully, we can be successful and competitive.
‘We have to start with the intention to win – if I didn’t believe that then I shouldn’t be here. We want to play in the Champions League year in, year out and that will drive us all.
