Frank Lampard ended his adventure with New York City FC and now the Chelsea legend is ready for new challenges, as he stated in an Instagram post last week.

Asked if a future role was possible for Super Frank at Chelsea after the win at Middlesbrough, Blues boss Antonio Conte replied:

“Frank Lampard has been a great player, a fantastic player for Chelsea. He won a lot with this team,” the Italian manager said.

“But now, for me, he’s still playing and for this reason I don’t know his future.

“I have great respect for him. For me it’s very difficult to reply to the question when the question starts ‘if’. It’s important to know that.”
