Chelsea legend John Terry left the Blues after 22 years among youth teams and first team: yesterday his signing for Aston Villa was announced, with the former Blues skipper admitting he didn’t want to join a Premier League side to not face Chelsea.

Now, Terry admits he would love to return at Stamford Bridge as a manager:

That’s a goal. Me and Lamps [Frank Lampard] have had those conversations. Do you dream too big? I don’t think you can ever dream too big. I’ve always wanted to be the very best and if that’s in management then Chelsea’s the one. That would be incredible but I realise as well you can’t go in somewhere like Chelsea as your first job.

“You need to go and learn, whether that’s in the academy like Stevie [Gerrard] is doing. It’s difficult to get jobs. I see a lot of players from my generation not walking into jobs that maybe I thought they would get. So I think you need to go out and do your work and put your minutes in on the pitch and make your mistakes that no one sees so that when you do go in, you’re kind of ready.”

According to Chelsea legend Frank Lampard to extend Antonio Conte‘s deal this summer will be the best signing for the Blues in this transfer window.

Speaking to ESPN, Super Frank said:

“Antonio would be their most important signing. For me, he was their man of the season. You talk about player of the year, I’m all for giving the players credit but because it was such a dramatic uplift from the year before I think you have to give him huge credit.

“You saw the system change and how he made them play in that formation, it worked well. I think he’s a huge signing for them. I have no doubts, I don’t know but I’m pretty confident he’ll be there and they’ll bring in players to play in the system he wants to play.’’

Everybody seem focused on the signings of new players right now, but according to Chelsea legend Frank Lampard, The Blues have, first, to agree a contract extension with manager Antonio Conte.

“Conte would be their most important signing” – Lampard said – “for me he was their man of the season. You talk about player of the year, I’m all for giving the players credit but because it was such a dramatic uplift from the year before I think you have to give him huge credit. You saw the system change and how he made them play in that formation, it worked well. I think he’s a huge signing for them. I have no doubts, I don’t know but I’m pretty confident he’ll be there and they’ll bring in players to play in the system he wants to play.”

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard spoke ahead of the FA Cup final against Arsenal at Wembley. The former midfielder told Standard Sport: “I think it could be a tight game; Chelsea are favourites on paper and rightly so, but they’ll have to perform on the day to overcome an Arsenal side who have strength in their team.”

Arsenal beat Chelsea in their home game at the Emirates Stadium in September: “I think the way we started the [home] game in the first half was very good - Aaron Ramsey said - We won the game in the first half really. We were very quick, we counter-attacked well, closed them down, got about them and everything seemed to come together on that day”.

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard thinks Antonio Conte has the potential to “build a dinasty” at the club.

Yesterday night the Blues legend spoke to Friday night football: “The man of the season is Conte”. – Lampard said – “He is the boss, he has driven them from 10th last year to make them champions and in the end it has been pretty comfortable. I think he’s going to be backed in the summer, and he does need backing. It’s a great squad of players they’ve got there but maybe there will be a freshen up, don’t lose your best players and add one or two at the top end to go into the Champions League.”

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard keeps praising Blues boss Antonio Conte speaking about his special bond with the players:

“It seems like players love to play for him. I know he works them hard at the training ground,” Lampard told Sky Sports on Sunday.

“It’s repetitive, he works on tactics and that can sometimes be difficult for a manager to keep the players with him because it can get boring. But I think he’s found that great balance of working hard and showing that [passion].

“The players can’t help but respond when a manager acts like that.”

Antonio Conte was beaming in front of Goodison Park away end after the final whistle.

Blues legend Frank Lampard says it’s great to see a manager like that.

Chelsea fans have seen this from Conte all season: passion and a feeling of togetherness.

“The players seem to want to play for him. I know he works them hard on the training field, which can be very repetitive.

“Sometimes it’s hard to keep players interested. But Conte has found the perfect balance.

“You can’t help but respond when you have a manager like that.”

John Terry will not play for Chelsea next season: few moments after this news was announced, Frank Lampard posted this touching message on his social media to praise and honour JT and his carrer with The Blues:

The last man standing of an incredible era for @chelseafc.

What a pleasure to play with the greatest defender in the @premierleague history.

He led the club both on and off the pitch from the moment he made his debut.

He set standards for everyone, whether it was demanding excellence in training, fighting for every win or respecting how fortunate we were to play for such a great club.

He was, and is, a legend, not just for his talent but just as much for his desire to get the best out of himself and others around him.

That’s what made him the most successful captain in the club’s history. Off the pitch a great friend to not just me but so many at the club and outside of it. The countless things I’ve seen JT do to help people outside of the game, things that not many see, are what defines him as a man.

@johnterry.26 you deserve every accolade you get over the next weeks and beyond and I hope you get what you deserve and lift two massive trophies at the end of the season(just to add to the tally).

Whatever you do next I know everyone will respect your decision and I know that the Chels will always be Lampardyour club. Absolute respect #jt #captain #leader #legend

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard is confident that Blues will bounce back from their disappointing period after losing against Crystal Palace and Manchester United, with Tottenham only 4 points behind Antonio Conte’s men at this stage.

“It’s tough because losing games brings an element of doubt, – Lampard said – You can see that even in their faces walking off the pitch, the manager’s thinking and they’re all a bit upset, it’ll be a big week for them now”

“It needs characters in the team and I think they are there but it needs the big characters in the team to settle the ship, work hard in the week, get ready for their next games and put in the performances that they have put in all season.”
