Chelsea 'want Frank Lampard to join coaching staff, become future manager'

Chelsea are reportedly keen to add club legend Frank Lampard to its first-team coaching staff. According to The Sun, the Blues hierarchy is eager to add the former England international to their backroom setup, with a view to him eventually managing the first team. Lampard has spent the past 18 months studying for his Uefa 'A' coaching licence and is said to be keen to enter management at the earliest opportunity. Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is reportedly impressed with the former midfielder's progress as an aspiring coach and could make him an employment offer as soon as next season. Currently Blues boss Antonio Conte has been tipped to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, with Carlo Ancelotti and Luis Enrique among those touted as potential replacements.
