Former Chelsea captain Gary Cahill left the club after his contract at Stamford Bridge came to an end at the end of last season.
The 33-year-old was frozen out of Maurizio Sarri’s squad last season and didn’t feature again from November until the end of the campaign.
Cahill won the Champions League, two Europa League titles and two Premier League titles during his seven year stint at the club.
Cahill has now looked back at his final year at the club and wished he had Frank Lampard as the manager.
“It’s a shame he [Lampard] wasn’t in last year when I was there,” Cahill told talkSPORT.
“No, I’m only joking. It would have been very interesting to work under him, especially when you’ve played with him and know what he’s like, it would have been an experience I would have relished.
“Leaving Chelsea was sad, but naturally everything has to come to an end.”
Cahill is currently at Crystal Palace, and he has revealed that it was the best decision for him.
He added: “It was certainly the right time for me to go from that club and I have nothing but positive things to say about the club.
“There’s no issue there. It was just naturally the right time to go. ‘Every single year I’ve made many, many appearances throughout my career, and last year I made hardly any, so that tells it all and that it was the right time to go.”
