Abramovich Set To Employ Frank Lampard As Chelsea Coach
Roman Abramovich is interested in offering Frank Lampard, Chelsea’s all-time leading goalscorer, a first-team coaching job at Stamford Bridge.
Lampard, 39, has been studying for his UEFA ‘A’ coaching licence over the past 18 months and is keen to move into management in the future.
He has worked with Chelsea’s youth teams at the club’s Cobham training ground and has impressed Chelsea owner Abramovich.
According to The Sun, the Russian billionaire wants Lampard to join Chelsea’s first-team coaching staff, with a view to him becoming manager in the future.
Antonio Conte is expected to move on in the summer and the club will look to integrate Lampard, who won three Premier League titles at Chelsea, into a new coaching set up.
Luis Enrique is one of the favourites to replace Conte at Stamford Bridge and Lampard has recently turned down managerial approaches from lower league clubs.
