Former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard is refusing to completely rule out or confirm his likely return to his former side as Nigerian Michael Emenalo’s replacement.
The Chelsea Legend is among a host of big names listed to resume as Technical Director at the West London club after former Super Eagles star Michael Emenalo left his post on Monday, leaving the role vacant at the upper tier of Chelsea’s administration.
Frank Lampard, who left Stamford Bridge back in the summer of 2014, played for rival club Manchester City and MLS side New York City, has a lot of experience at the top hierarchy of football, to deserve such a position.
Lampsy won a number of titles during his 13-year spell at Chelsea, including three English Premier League titles, four English FA Cup trophies as well as one UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League titles.
Lampard, the all-time leading goalscorer for the Bluest, remained coy on a return to the club in the vacant capacity as Technical Director when talking to Sky Sports.
The former England international confirmed working with Michael Emenalo for about seven or eight years and admitted his role at the West London club coincided with the most successful period in the club’s history; he admitted the Nigerian deserves a lot of credit for that feat.
“In terms of myself [Frank Lampard], I [Lampard] don’t know. I [Lampard] am a Chelsea person [fan], I [Lampard] would love to be involved with the club [Chelsea] long-term in some way. We’ll see [and see].”
