Lampard Speaks Out For The First Time After Officially Being Named Chelsea’s New Manager

Chelsea have appointed Frank Lampard as the club’s new manager, the club have confirmed this morning.

The club legend has signed a three-year contract with the Blues, keeping him at Stamford Bridge until 2022.

Asked for his reaction after being appointed manager, he told the club’s official website that he had a sense of pride in becoming Chelsea boss and was keen to get started in his new role:

“I am immensely proud to be returning to Chelsea as head coach. Everyone knows my love for this club and the history we have shared, however, my sole focus is on the job in hand and preparing for the season ahead.”

“I am here to work hard, bring further success to the club and I cannot wait to get started!”

Lampard is coming into the role with one-year of managerial experience following his spell at Derby County last season.

The 41-year-old finished sixth with the Rams in the Championship and guided them to the playoff final where they lost out to Aston Villa.

With Chelsea’s transfer ban, Lampard will have to work with the squad he has currently, but after developing talent during his time at Derby, he will be looking to do the same thing at the Blues where he has a large crop of young players at his disposal.
