Chelsea’s all-time top goalscorer Frank Lampard has revealed of his plans to launch his career as a football manager after being linked with the Ipswich Town vacancy, as The Independent reports.
Lampard has been working at the Blues’ training ground complex in Cobham with Under-18 manager and former Chelsea teammate Jody Morris.
The Englishman has obtained his A License as he continues to work through his coaching badges in the hope of landing his first leading coaching job.
Lampard admitted he will go into deep thought when he feels the opportunity to take on a first-team managerial role is right, as he’s quoted by The Independent.
“Well I’m doing my coaching badges at the moment. I’ve spent a lot of time at Chelsea this year, gaining hours of experience.
“I’ve already managed to get my A License in coaching. So yes, with the right opportunity and right timing for me, I’d really take a closer look at it.”
The report also cites Ipswich Town as a potential destination for the 39-year-old to make this new pathway in Lampard’s fantastic career in football. If the Blues legend is anywhere near as good a manager as he was a player, the sky is the limit for ‘Super Frank’.
