Frank Lampard was a shock appointment as Chelsea manager, after the departure of Maurizio Sarri.

Lampard had only been a manager for just one year, and it was with Championship side Derby County.

However, Lampard did well to lead the team to a top four place, and the Blues boss has now admitted that it was a crazy season for him, and he was disappointed to lose the FA Cup final.

But for Lampard, managing Chelsea is a dream come true, as he once more reveals his love for the club.

“My first season back at Chelsea, in management, has been a crazy one for many reasons,” Lampard said, according to the official Chelsea website.

“There were many challenges that I knew faced us coming into the job at the start of the season. So, to achieve Champions League football for next season gave me lots of really positive feelings for how we can move forward from here and continue to improve.

“There were some really tough moments along the way. I was very upset after the FA Cup final, because I know what it means to Chelsea to win competitions like this.

“But I think when I look back and reflect, the biggest feeling that comes through for me is the fact that I’m back here, managing the club that I love.”
