It’s official, Chelsea legend Frank Lampard is the new boss of Chelsea, having signed a three year deal.
Asked to describe his emotions as Chelsea boss, Lampard told Chelsea TV: “They’re big in a good sense, when you feel a club, I think everyone knew that, a lot of players in my era were the same
“That was the kind of things fans relate to, when you have players who really feel and care for the club.
“I was fortunate enough to play alongside some great ones. We know that.
“I still have that feeling, even on this side, and that’s what I want to see in my players, in my team because I think those are the things fans want to see.”
Asked how it sounds to be Chelsea head coach, Lampard added: “It sounds good. Surreal to a degree because my playing career here, I don’t think I need to state how much it meant to me, to play 13 years at this place. Home for a long a time in a great era that I was fortunate enough to be involved in.
“Now this is a new chapter and I’m really looking forward to it.
“As I say everyone knows how I feel about the club, my absolute desire is to be here and work hard. I think I did that as a player, trying to get the most out of myself on the pitch, and that’s my intention to do as a manager.”
