Veteran midfielder Frank Lampard has said he would love to manage Chelsea after his playing career is over,and added that he wont 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 wouldnt want to go through showing myself with a lower club, The Sun quoted Lampard,as saying.
Although I would never expect to walk into a position such as the Chelsea manager,this is the only club Id 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.
Id love to have a crack at it but Id want to do it well. I wouldnt want the supporters to forget everything Ive tried to do as a player because I cant manage the team, Lampard said.
